Jerry Boykin tells his story of growing up in North Carolina, his days as a cadet and football player at Virginia Tech and his service in the US military. Gen. Boykin is a decorated vet., an origional member of Delta Force, and he served in the most important military missions of the last 30 plus years. He goes into detail of what really happened in the aborted rescue attempt of the hostages held at the the US embasy in Tehran. He gives the reader details of the Battle of the Black Sea later depicted in the book 'Blackhawk Down' and the movie of the same name. He documents his dealings with the American far left-wing media and their attempts to bring him down while he served at the Pentagon. A far right-wing, biggoted, religious zealot, as NBC tried to portray him, Boykin is not. Rather he is an American warrior who happens to believe that the US is in a struggle with evil (not Islam)in our war on terror. He is not anti-Muslim and does not see Muslims as evil, but rather sees that our enemies are thugs wrongly using Islam as a shield. Boykin is a Christian and he tells of instances where his faith was strengthened in the midst of adversity. It is the story of an interesting life of courage under fire at home and abroad. During these trials Gen. Boykin never gave up and the book illustrates his strength and resolve to do what was right. The book is an action-packed, fast-paced read that is hard to put down. Soldiers like Boykin are the reason we still live in a free society.

Typo?

I'm half way through the nook book, and noticed on page 187 he says "I am stashing it when an invisible sledgehammer crashes into my left shoulder...but my left hand no longer works. My left arm no longer works." "I lay down my carbine and reach over with my right hand ...
I'm half way through the nook book, and noticed on page 187 he says "I am stashing it when an invisible sledgehammer crashes into my left shoulder...but my left hand no longer works. My left arm no longer works." "I lay down my carbine and reach over with my right hand to find the stump of my shoulder."

On page 195, the fourth paragraph, "Your nerve is so damaged that it is very unlikely that it will regenerate. There's a very good possibility that you'll never use your right arm again."

It's a small error; otherwise the book is a good read. I particularly like cross referencing it with Eric Hanley's Inside Delta.
