    American Heroes by Oliver North

    I chose to read this book becasue i watched Oliver North's military shows when i was younger. I decided that if the book was as good as the tv show then it would be worth my time and it certantly was. I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind who is willing to learn about the war. The book tries to be politically correct but has a conservative attitude toward most things. American Heroes has great information about the war and provides a touching first hand accounts of these events. Anyone willing to learn will enjoy this book as long as it is read with a open mind.

    A "boots-on-the-ground" narrative of military operations in Iraq & Afghanistan.

    Ollie gives us a soldier's perspective on daily military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He and his camera man/producer take us on patrols and missions with many touching and compelling images and narratives. There are profiles of heroes who put it all on the line to serve their country and their fellow soldiers. The many citations supporting medals awarded to the heroes, many posthumously, are gripping and the profiles of wounded warriors are inspiring. This is the news that is not reported in the popular media; stories of personal dedication and sacrifice and outreach to the people of these countries. these stories emphasize the innate goodness, humanity and compassion of the many american military members serving in these foreign lands.

    Very Military Technical

    If you like war history, you will like this book. I didn't really enjoy it until the very last 20 pages. Too much military verbage for me.
