American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam (War Stories)

American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam (War Stories) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In American Heroes, New York Times bestselling 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.?Real heroes are selfless. Those who serve America in harm's 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.?Despite the way they are too often presented, the men and women in uniform today are overwhelmingly good. I never cease to be amazed at the self-discipline of these brave young Americans. They can endure the adrenaline-pumping violence of an enemy engagement - and then, just minutes later, help children get safely to school. No nation - ours included - has ever had a military force better than the one we have today.? - Oliver North

Synopsis:

In this patriotic audiobook, North addresses issues of defense against global terrorism, Jihad, and radical Islam from his firsthand perspective as a decorated military officer, national security advisor, and current Middle East war correspondent. Unabridged. 1 MP3 CD.

In American Heroes, New York Times bestselling author Oliver North addresses issues of defense against global terrorism, Jihad, and radical Islam from his firsthand perspective as a decorated military officer and national security advisor and current Middle East war correspondent. This patriotic book also pulls in news reports from War Stories, the award-winning FOX News Channel series hosted by North.

Ambitions in scope, American Heroes details the earliest terrorism faced by the United States in the 1800s at the hands of the Barbary Pirates, the major terrorist group developments of the 1970s and 80s, and, most vividly, the post-9/11 Iraq War era. Most inspiringly, Norths up-close field notes highlight the core values of todays American soldier in relation to the fight at hand:

COURAGE

COMMITMENT

COMPASSION

FAITH

Thank God for freedom.

Thank God for American heroes.
