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 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.

    " This was a very good book, and it gave me a lot of insight into how much American soldiers and Afghanis alike, sacrificed in their fight against radical islam. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah Boutwell | 6/30/2013

    " This starts with the 9/11 attacks and gives some history of the war in Iraq, but mainly deals with the life of the soldiers, not the war. Very moving. There is an on-line link to Oliver North's War Stories for viewing. "

    " This is the true story of the War against Radical Islam. This book is for anyone who truly supports the troops because it tells their story. It is also a must read for anyone who wants to understand the war we are in. It is a war that won't end even if we quit and go home from Iraq. "

    " I had the pleasure of meeting the author and he is a charming man. I liked the honest realistic assessment of the threat to us all by fundamentalism of any kind. Here is also support for those doing their duty, no matter what you think of the justification of this war. "
