Great read. Everybody should read this book.
For there to be ANY truth to this book AT ALL! The author has NEVER served in ANY branch of the military, has never been deployed, nothing. Yet he tries to speak as an authority of how other countries view us. PLEASE! I was there, I fought in Desert Storm, and the thousands of Iraq's we took as prisoners, the Saudi's, the Kwaitie's, and the many others I saw were scared to death of us. Physically we American's stand taller than 99% of the people from that region, militarily wise we train better than any of the other countries that I served with which include the British Desert Rats, the French, the Saudi's, and on and on. This junk of the Saudi's think American's are a "weak" fighting force is just plain absurd! When I looked into the Saudi's eye's before the war all I saw was fear. I could go on and on, because I WAS THERE unlike the author.
I really thought this book was going to be factual and speak to the little skirmishes that happen under the radar. Nope, the author decided to speak about the Gulf War's, what caused the Afghanistan war(like he would know). And it really irked me when he spoke about Generals as if they were stupid. Dude if you know so much enlist and show them how it's done. You'd never make it out of basic.
Geez, who cares, this book was so fiction it wasn't funny.
Yes, can I get my credit back to purchase another book? And can I rate this book any lower than 1 star?
The underlining chivalry of the two soldiers. Being a former US Soldier stationed in Germany I totally understood what the author was talking about. In fact I had the wonderful opportunity while in Germany to train with the Germany Army and I was awarded a German Shootsner(bronze). What an awesome experience and the German's were wonderful! Very respectful to me an American, treated me like royalty.
To many to list just one. There were two moments that will just grab you specifically. First when the two pilots first meet. And second, was when they meet after the war.
Charlie was, just because of his sense of loyalty to his men. Just an incredible man.
Just to many to name just one.
Yes, absolutely! This is a must read for any American. This exemplifies what it has taken to remain a free country. One must always remember, Hitler was trying his best to strike America. Since WWII we have continued to have wars, the World Trade Centers have been brought down(albeit by cowards). America can never rest, we ARE the shinning light of the world. It is well documented throughout history.
I highly recommend this book. I never knew Mr. Rumsfeld was educated at Princeton. The Democrat's surely won't tell you this fact. For all the criticizime that President Bush and Mr. Rumsfeld took and still take, I am amazed of how much of their policies are still in placed today.....
Audible, I want a credit for this terrible book. In the book he's reading all these supposedly published documents but he doesn't back up anything with released fact. He just leaves everything hanging like an inuindo just trying to get you to think devisously instead of doing some basic fact checking. This book has been such an utter waste of time and material. Do yourself a favor and pick a different book, Geez a former Navy Seal should have done better than this piece of junk!
This book was ok. It went pretty much of what I thought it might. The author tells you alot of what the Secret Service Staff go though and are required to endure.
This was a very good read. The author explained alot of what it takes to be a sniper. And the fact of how snipers save lives more than what they take. I really recommend this book.
What a terrible book. Audible is there anyway I can bet my money back. I hated this book. I thought the author did a great job, it was the subject matter that was just terrible!
What a great book. This guy was everything that makes an American an American. I highly recommend this book!
I thought the book was very insightful. What a tragedy of how Xerox dropped the ball. To think of what the personel computer means today, and to know it's a derivitive of what was invented at Xerox.
I thought this was a good book. It's just a shame the way we were drug into that war, then how we were left to manage the load in a corrupt country. Kennedy got us into this mess, and I think it's funny how most people forget that fact. And I find it ironic how the corrupt south vietnamise government is so much like the governments of Afghanistan and Iraq. When will we ever learn.......
