Update June 16, 2015:
I was ready to order this book, so I went to amazon.com and prepared to purchase it. But first, I read some of the reviews. Sadly, the reviews were not good; most people said that the book was only a rehash of Bill’s book “Killing Patton.”
Continue reading my original post:
Regular viewers of Bill O’Reilly’s TV show know that, at the end of every show, he gives a bit of wisdom which he calls his “Tip of the day.”
Last night’s Tip of the Day was a plug for his new children’s book entitled Hitler’s Last Days. According to Bill, “Hitler was the most evil man who ever lived.”
What about Ghengis Khan? Sorry, he is not even in the running for the title of the most evil man. Hitler was responsible for the killing of 6 million Jews, and you can’t get any more evil than that. You can order the book here.
O’Reilly said, on his show last night, that his book Killing Patton has sold so many copies that he decided to follow it up with a children’s book about Hitler. How are these two subjects even remotely related?
I wrote a review, of Bill’s book about Patton, in which I pointed out that Patton had absolutely nothing to do with Auschwitz, yet Bill devoted two chapters to Auschwitz.
Hitler was noted for his love of children. Was this pointed out in Bill O’Reilly’s new children’s book?
This quote is from the website where you can order the book:
Hitler’s Last Days is a gripping account of the death of one of the most reviled villains of the 20th century–a man whose regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today. Adapted from Bill O’Reilly’s historical thriller Killing Patton, this book will have young readers–and grown-ups too–hooked on history.
It is unfortunate that the urchins [O’Reilly’s name for children] will not have a chance to learn the full story of Hitler.
In the 1930ies and 1940ies, Hitler’s admirers used to gather at the Berghof [Hitler’s mountain retreat] just like the Elvis fans who stood outside Graceland, hoping to get a glimpse of their idol.
The German people literally worshiped the ground that Hitler walked on. After Hitler made an occasional appearance to greet his fans, they would gather up the sand upon which Hitler had stood.
Hitler was known as “the people’s Chancellor” because he was a common man, and he did what the German people wanted. Before World War II started, Hitler was more loved than any other leader in world history; his approval rating was 98%.
As the man who was allegedly responsible for the deaths of 60 million people, including 6 million Jews, Hitler has now become the most hated man in the world.
Now there will be more hatred for Hitler after the urchins read O’Reilly’s new book. “Wise up” as O’Reilly is fond of saying.
