We need more writers who actually experience what they write in their books.

I've read several books about the War in Iraq for research projects and papers. American Heroes is by far the most clear and interesting one yet. It explains every military term, event, treaty, etc. clearly and fully. It's very informative and well written. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to understand the events leading up to the War in Iraq and the events during.

Oliver North always brings us to the FRONT LINES. He is ,"THE BEST." I am so glad he writes these books. This is a MUST READ! OR a MUST HAVE for COLLECTORS.
As always he always tells it as it is. AMERICAN HEROES reminds us of our troops, how they GIVE SO MUCH and what makes them our HEROES. Their lives are put on the line for us every second of everyday. While "SOME PEOPLE waste their luxurious FREEDOM", fighting with hate filled words and arguing over such petty things. We should wake up every morning thanking these Heroes that we are safe and free because of our heroes. Think about for that moment what our HEROES open their eyes to.
OLIVER NORTH so definely tells of us of our HEROES. Everyone must read this book Democrats, Republicans, LEFT, RIGHT, MIDDLE, rich or poor. This book is about our HEROES "NOT POLITICS" and everyday when we open our eyes THANK our HEROES and PRAY for them. Thank You Colonel North for another GREAT BOOK!

I am so pleased to see this wonderful book about the great work our men and women in arms are doing for our country. The news has been so overwhelmingly negative and untruthful it makes my heart sick. Thank you for writing such a compelling book that tells the truth about the enemy we face and the heroes who represent us!

Format: Hardcover
The book is loaded with pictures and short stories, most just a page or two, about American military men and women. The book is neither Republican nor Democrat. Lieutenant Colonel North makes the service men and women come alive through their stories, one after another. The snippets are page turners. You will read three or four stories every time you pick up this book because the stories are so compelling. This is the war told from the ground up by two guys who have "been there, done that." Even North's editor is a military man--an Army Ranger who flies helicopters.

So many times people forget the day to day sacrifices that are being made by these brave soldiers. People become complacent and fall in to the trap of listening to what is fed to them by the media. This book recounts the true stories of bravery told by those whose lived through them. Col.North does an excellent job of bringing these stories to life. These stories are a testament to the necessary and vital work being done by our military to keep us all free and safe. These 'American Heroes', serve with Honor and that ideal is what so many can never understand. The stories and pictures in this book, will help people realize that our military personnel consider it a privilege to serve this great nation. Now more than ever, we need to hear these stories and remember what it is we are trying to defend against.

Format: Hardcover
This is a high quality book in the National Geographic style. Well illustrated with scenes of the young people that are doing the job and relevant articles about their heroics. Not all heroics is dodging bullets and bombs. Sometimes it's taking the time to comfort a child or give aid to a civilian. Even enemy combatants are cared for by the troopers after the shooting stops. I give this book my highest recommendation. This is money well spent.American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam (War Stories)

Reading American Heroes reminds me of why I'm proud to be an American. Oliver North provides an objective, journalistic review of what it takes to keep America free...sacrifice. Every one of these brave young men and women described, and even the ones that aren't, are Real American Heroes. Bravo Colonel for telling us (and showing us with these incredible photos) the truth about the Iraq War !
