American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam [With DVD with Two Episodes of "War Stories"]by Oliver North
Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post best seller, now available with a new chapter on events in Afghanistan plus an exclusive online access code for three downloadable episodes of War Stories!
What is a hero? Oliver North says, “Real heroes are selfless. Those who serve America in harms way in the war against radical Islam have that quality in abundance. And so do their families and loved ones at home. Yet, they rarely get the attention or coverage they deserve . . . I never cease to be amazed at the self-discipline of these brave young Americans. They can endure the adrenaline-pumping violence of enemy engagement, and then, just minutes later, help school children get safely to their classes . . . No nation—ours included—has ever had a military force better than the one we have today.”
In American Heroes, North offers an inspiring, first-hand account of the extraordinary men and women defending America against radical Islamic terror from his perspective as a forty year member of the United States military, a member of the National Security Council staff and serving as the U.S. counter-terrorism coordinator from 1983-1986. This patriotic book also pulls in the very latest reports and exclusive full-color photographs from War Stories, the award-winning FOX News Channel series hosted by North.
Oliver North writes firsthand accounts of faithful American heroes in the fight against global terrorism and jihad; a New York Times best seller now in trade paper with updated chapter on Afghanistan plus a code for two downloadable episodes of War Stories.
