A Stirring Reminder of Our Responsibility to Safeguard Freedom and American Values
Steven D. Armstrong knows the meaning of freedom. From his childhood spent in rural Tennessee to his combat experiences in Grenada, he developed a no-nonsense philosophy that stresses strong defense, a respect for history, and a constant awareness of the threats facing liberty. 'Neath the Shade of the Liberty Tree outlines Armstrong's refreshing outlook while recalling a singularly remarkable life that took him around the globe in support of freedom.
It's an outlook distilled in combat with America's famed 82nd Airborne Division. An infantry veteran of Operation Urgent Fury, the 1983 liberation of the island nation of Grenada, Armstrong saw the evils and oppression of communism up close. As Armstrong shows, the welcome shade of the liberty tree is the only escape from the evil schemes of mankind. Again and again, Armstrong shows how this tree must be tended with utmost care lest its sturdy branches wither and die. Through richly detailed personal experiences and keen political insight that touches on today's hottest issues, this insightful and engaging work challenges all of us to take better care of our republic. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
