Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In 2009, a team of Navy SEALs captured an Iraqi terrorist, sometimes known as the Butcher of Fallujah, who was responsible for the brutal murders of four American security officers. Shockingly, the captured man leveled accusations of brutality against his captors; even more shockingly, the American government put three SEALs on trial for prisoner abuse. They were acquitted, but the charges ruined their careers and put the American military in the global spotlight in pretty much the worst possible way. This book, written by thriller author Robinson with the cooperation of two of the three SEALs, chronicles the story, from the capture of the terrorist through the trials of the SEALs, and it’s a tale that is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and spark debate. Written in an even-keeled, reportorial style, the book tells a story we wish had never happened, but one that certainly needs to be told. --David Pitt

Review

Kirkus Reviews, 11/1/13

“Robinson ably discusses the intricacies of military justice…Captures the folly and resource drain of the Iraq War…Should appeal to conservative readers.”



Washington Times, 11/13/13

“In this very important book, author Patrick Robinson shows how the culture of our military is imperiled by a high command that too frequently allows political correctness to trump honor and common sense.”



Cape Cod Times, 11/10/13

“This is a story of war waged in a distant place, and the role of modern media to open doors for the bad guys but get the bigger story straight—eventually.”



Booklist Online, 11/22/13

“It’s a tale that is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and spark debate. Written in an even-keeled, reportorial style, the book tells a story we wish had never happened, but one that certainly needs to be told.”



The American Spectator, 11/26/13

“The book’s account of the high command’s intimidation tactics should be required reading for all military personnel today.”



Sacramento Book Review, December 2013

“If you are looking for a strong read, this is a no-brainer.”



Bookviews blog, December 2013

“A case history of why morale in our armed forces today has been savaged by the ‘political correctness’ that has been imposed on all the services…This is a story worth reading as a lesson of how far our military have strayed from its values under the pressure of an administration that gives greater credence to the word of a terrorist than to its own heroes.”

BookNews.com, December 2013

“[A] dramatic narrative account.”


WomanAroundTown.com, 1/21/14

“[A] war story that’s not for sissies…[Robinson] doesn’t pretend to be impartial—as evidenced by the title—but he is honest and straightforward in telling how a team of Navy Seals captured the notorious terrorist Ahmad Hashim Abd Al-Isawi…Many have claimed that ‘military justice’ is an oxymoron, and this story backs up that assertion.”

Mr. Robinson and this publisher owe an apology to the Naval Special Operations Speaks Warfare Community
Review:
SHAME on Amazon for deleting posts of our Veterans and Navy SEALs speaking the TRUTH about this book and the facts in question.

How many facts are wrong in this book?? This book falsely portrays the scammer, Graham Ware, as a friend of Navy SEALs. Funny, this same ‘advocate’ is currently being investigated for trying to murder the families of Navy SEALs.

Graham Ware of Scottsdale, AZ (falsely portrayed in the book as our “supporter”) was exposed by Navy SEALs in July 2012, running a scam called SupportTheSeals.
The Navy SEALs who exposed Graham Ware include prominent Navy SEALs:
Marcus Luttrell (“Lone Survivor”),
Don Shipley (Extreme SEALs Experience),
CAPT Larry Bailey (Special Operations Speaks),
and other highly decorated Navy SEALS.
They issued a Cease and Desist letter to Ware and his organization. In retaliation Graham Ware deliberately transferred secure information to the enemy, leading terrorists to our homes. He even went as far as pretending to be Marcus Luttrell on twitter, making false claims that Marcus was/is his friend. FALSE.

Robinson writes that Graham Ware was a “potential” for Special Forces. Laughable! Nothing could be further from the truth! We don’t accept scammers and terrorist helpers into our ranks. And we don’t accept posers either… Stolen Valor is not taken lightly in our Brotherhood.

Why would the book fail to mention Graham Ware was running fake Navy SEALs Accounts on Facebook and Twitter? Why did the Mom of our fallen teammate (first Navy SEAL lost in Iraq) have to hire an attorney to keep Ware from stalking her and her charity?

Patrick Robinson has failed the Naval Special Warfare community with this book by refusing to denounce the actions of Graham Ware and those who assisted him in running a Navy SEAL charity scam that took advantage of military families who thought they were helping the SEALs mentioned in this book. Robinson, by including Ware's name and giving him credit, shows terrible judgment. People who are genuinely interested in supporting our troops should not buy this book until the author does the right thing by redacting all mention of Graham Ware and his fake charity.

Unfortunately, this book is part of a larger scam perpetrated by and foisted on the American public-who rightfully love the SEALs and seek to support them-by a two bit con artist and a derelict former SEAL who was so enamored by the allure of money that he betrayed his own brothers. This is prima facie evidence that not all those who joined the Teams honor their brothers, and that a Trident will stick to refuse if you press hard enough. There is plenty of shame to spread around but Patrick Robinson deserves the Congressional Medal of Shame for not getting his facts straight before writing this hybrid of fact and fiction, and furthermore for being associated with a Ware, who is a step below the used car salesman, and on par with the guy that tries to sell you an extended warranty and have you finance it.

Let me be more succinct, this edifice to dishonor is so apropos, but not because of the story of what happened to the SEALs involved, but for what one of them did to his own brothers for a pittance, ergo the title could not be more appropriate.

Perhaps when the truth of this shameful lie is finally known, it will stand with the disgrace of the current administration, Benghazi, et al for how despicable some human beings are in pursuit of their lust for power, wealth, and recognition. Patrick Robinson has done good work, but this is not among them and the yarn he and his merry band of conniving charlatans have spun will ultimately bound and gag them all. The truth will come out, it always does.

This is an important story that absolutely needs to be told. Unfortunately, I have to question the credibility of the information given, due to watching a television investigative report about Graham Ware and his fraudulent activities. I find it disconcerting to read Mr. Ware praised when clearly he deserves contempt. I will advise friends and family to avoid this book.

This is a disgrace for the SEALs community, how this and his other scams got to print is beyond my comprehension. He doesn't have any friends with any team guys. I have never spit on a book, but I guess it's time I start. Eventually, he'll be sued, or somebody/s might explore his pain threshold

Graham Ware's appearance in this book made me question the entire work. I did finish the book, but with much speculation as to whether much more of the book was published without a thorough fact check, even a simple google search would uncover this Graham Ware sleeze bag.
