Krishen Iyer is an experience presence in the Fresno, California, business community and guides a real estate firm that is currently pursuing investments in and around Reedley. An avid reader, Krishen Iyer enjoys nonfiction books by authors such as businessman Warren Buffet and political pundit Bill O’Reilly.
The latter's most recent work, Killing the Rising Sun: How America Vanquished World War II, Japan takes a close look at the military events of the Pacific Theater and the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima that ultimately ended the war. O’Reilly describes hardfought battles in locations such as Iwo Jima and Peleliu and also documents the effort to complete the atom bomb through the Manhattan Project. These activities went into overdrive as the war stretched on beyond expectation and many lives were lost.
With the threat of nuclear attacks in the news to this day with countries such as North Korea and Russia, Bill O’Reilly’s book is a timely reminder of the ways in which the past informs present political realities.
