Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 more than 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.

Illuminated by more than 300 full-color images, 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!

Synopsis:

Now available in a trade paper edition, Oliver North’s New York Times best seller gives a first-hand account of extraordinary American volunteers defending the world against radical Islamic terror.
