In American Heroes, New York Times best-selling author Oliver North offers an inspiring, first-hand account of the extraordinary young American volunteers defending us against radical Islamic terror. Since 9-11-01, North and his award-winning War Stories documentary team have made a dozen extended trips to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Philippines, covering U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen, and Marines for Fox News Channel. With extensive experience as a decorated military officer, a counter-terrorism expert, and as a documentary filmmaker embedded with American combat units, he has a unique perspective on the enemy we face and the qualities of those who protect us. American Heroes offers a close-up of this generation's "citizen-soldiers" who have chosen the path of the patriot and gone into harm's way for their countrymen. North's unprecedented access, his grasp of history and his lucid reports from the crucible of combat make this a stirring chronicle of courage, commitment, compassion and faith. Thank God for American heroes.
Informative, Entertaining, Moving
This book was executed skillfully with reverence and fact. Col. North's personal accounts on the Global War on Terrorism, provoked a range of emotion from pride, sadness, joy and everything between. Yes, It did it's job to entertain. But more important, it highlighted and shed light to the daily sacrifices of our US troops in this war. Their brave and heroic deeds are mostly done out of the spotlight they deserve. This book provides that shine and is well worth a listen to. The insight it gives into this war is refreshing. I believe it gives the true perspective of the "boots on the ground". If you are wondering what our troops have sacrificed and what they think of the war, give this book a shot.
