Bill O'Reilly's latest installment in his "Killing" series of books is making waves--shooting right to the top of the New York Time's best sellers list.

"Killing the Rising Sun: How America Vanquished World War II Japan," debuted at the top of the nonfiction best sellers list this week, marking another hit in the FOX News host's multimillion-selling series by O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.

The book promises to take 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."
