Military History Roundup

History comes to life through fact and fiction in these books about World War II, the American Revolution, and our founding documents:

KILLING THE RISING SUN: How America Vanquished World War II Japan by Bill O’Reilly & Martin Dugard
The latest book in O’Reilly & Dugard’s multimillion-selling Killing series takes readers to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Meanwhile, Harry Truman ascends to the presidency, only to face the most important political decision in history: whether or not to use nuclear weapons.

BORDERS by Roy Jacobsen
A brilliantly layered, sweeping novel of World War II set in the Ardennes—a forested, mountainous borderland that spans France, Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg—about the impossible choices between familial love and national identity. “An artful deconstruction of nationalism through the prism of personal loss and reconciliation. Read Jacobsen’s novel carefully to savor its images and themes.” — Kirkus Reviews

GEORGE WASHINGTON’S SECRET SPY WAR: The Making of America’s First Spymaster by John A. Nagy
The untold story of how George Washington, a Virginia farmer, became the eighteenth century’s greatest and America’s first spymaster. “Drawing on Washington’s correspondence and diary, the late Nagy, an American Revolution specialist, follows Washington from his participation in the French and Indian Wars, where he cut his teeth in the ways of espionage, to his great deception in the American Revolution that secured colonial victory. Nagy’s fast-paced chronicle reveals a little-known side of America’s Revolutionary War hero.” — Publishers Weekly

AMERICAN TREASURES: The Secret Efforts to Save the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Gettysburg Address by Stephen Puleo
Puleo tells the dramatic, never-before-told history of America’s efforts to protect important founding documents, plus the key role played by Librarian of Congress Archibald MacLeish during WWII. “An engrossing account of the creation, consecration, and conservation of the documents that defined American democracy. Readers will take away a new appreciation for the vision and savvy of government officials in finding ways to insure such treasures would survive.”
Library Journal

Well Done, New York Times Best Sellers!

This is the time of year that Talia and I are of the busier of the busy bees (maybe that's why we're buzzing so much lately??) and we end up missing some of the totally rad week-to-week Macmillan excitement.

So when Talia paused for 1/23 of a second to sip her coffee this morning and glanced at The New York Times Book Review Best Sellers list for May 27, she did a double-take and then called me in to talk about how many of our awesome books are on the list. 

We high-fived about it.

Editor's Choice

FARTHER AWAY by Jonathan Franzen

"The theme of human struggle against the pulls of solipsism and narcissism illuminates every page of the novelist’s essays."

OBLIVION by Héctor Abad. Translated by Anne McLean and Rosalind Harvey.

"Abad’s highly personal coming-of-age story is also a sociopolitical portrait of Colombia."

KILLING LINCOLN and Bringing History to Life

Bill O'Reilly's thrilling narrative history, KILLING LINCOLN, brings the assassination of our 16th president into vivid clarity.

In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end. Former Confederates are reintegrating into American society, but one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased.

In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—-charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—-murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. 

A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government. 

Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.

MSNBC has posted an excerpt from the book on their site. Read the full excerpt here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44976606.
