“Rarely have timeless conservative values been articulated and defended with this sort of clarity and vigor.
And rarely does one come across an individual like Allen West, whose personal code is one that, if we were all to emulate it, would make us stronger as a nation. Guardian of the Republic is a book to savor--entertaining, fearless, and fun."
-Mark Levin, New York Times
bestselling author of The Liberty Amendments
and host of the nationally syndicated “The Mark Levin Show” “Allen West is an interesting and impressive man, and he tells a gripping and fascinating tale. Read it. You’ll learn about war, politics, America…and life."
--William Kristol, Editor, The Weekly Standard “Guardian of the Republic is a refreshing account of one man’s journey— through obstacle and opportunity and aided by faith and family—to become a warrior for the future of the American Republic.
Allen West’s story is rooted in education, self-reliance and a relentless sense of purpose. He strips away the pretenses of liberalism and reminds us what’s at stake if we continue to make the wrong choices. Most inspiringly, he offers readers an invitation to stand strong on behalf of those values that have defined generations of Americans.”
--Michael Steele, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee
"Those familiar with Allen West already understand why he is one of the most controversial and compelling figures in American public life. This potent little book will show all others that the passionate reactions to his principled work are based on substance, not just style."
--Michael Medved, host of the nationally syndicated “The Michael Medved Show”
“Thorough in his analyses, Allen West in Guardian of the Republic
offers a unique perspective on our country. Informed by his dedicated military and public service, West provides a compelling defense of the conservative values he believes must guide the debate as we confront the political, economic and social challenges that face our nation.”
