On his podcast Wednesday, O’Reilly read a message from a fan who complimented his book, “Killing the Rising Sun.”
“I really like the way you wrapped it up, Bill, the last bit about your father caught me off-guard, but it was a really nice twist,” O’Reilly quoted.
He then talked about how his father was a naval officer en route to Japan “and would have been killed in the invasion had the atom bombs not been dropped.”
O’Reilly said he wouldn’t be here if his father had been killed in the war.
“And a lot of people are trying to kill me right now, as you know,” O’Reilly said. “But we’re going to tough that one out.”
He then recommended his book as “a great Father’s Day/Mother’s Day gift.”
O’Reilly also said the next book in his “Killing” series will be released in September.
