Publisher's Summary

The Instant New York Times Bestseller, by President-elect Donald Trump's National Security Adviser.

A war is being waged against us by radical Islamists, and, as current events demonstrate, they are only getting stronger. Al-Qaeda has morphed into a much more dangerous, menacing threat: ISIS. Lt. General Michael T. Flynn is blunt and urgent. This book aims to inform the American people of the grave danger we face in the war on terror—and will continue to face—until our government takes decisive action against the terrorists that want nothing more than to destroy us and our way of life.

Flynn spent more than thirty three years in Army intelligence, and as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency worked closely with Generals Stanley McChrystal and David Petraeus, Admiral Mike Mullen, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and other policy, defense, intelligence, and war-fighting leaders. From coordinating on-the-ground operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, to building reliable intelligence networks, to preparing strategic plans for fighting terrorism, Flynn has been a firsthand witness to government screw-ups, smokescreens, and censored information that our leaders don’t want us to know.

The Field of Fight succinctly lays out why we have failed to stop terrorist groups from growing, and what we must do to stop them. The core message is that if you understand your enemies, it's a lot easier to defeat them—but because our government has concealed the actions of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and groups like ISIS and al Qaeda, and the role of Iran in the rise of radical Islam, we don’t fully understand the enormity of the threat they pose against us.

A call to action that is sensible, informed, and original, The Field of Fight asserts that we must find a way to not only fight better, but to win.

    "Excellently written and delivered"

    I was initially skeptical because I've found most General officers who author books to be slightly narcissistic and deflective of responsibility, if not downright accusatory of others. This is not the case with this book. General Flynn did an amazing job of providing enough details to readily enable a reader to fill in the blanks. His background in intelligence shined through his explanations of what has happened, why it has happened and most importantly how to fix the mistakes made in Iraq and with Al-Qaeda in Iraq (ISIS). Don't hesitate to buy this book. Don't be surprised if you find yourself listening to it multiple times.

    "Compassion & Realality"

    I have more compassion for moderate Muslims who are victims of radical Islam and a new resolve to crush/exterminate the dominant militant Islamic scrum.

    We are at war and our very existence is in the balance.

    "Our next National Security Advisor gets it!"

    Mike Flynn has an excellent grasp of the Middle East, Russia and other parts of the world and articulates in a superlative manner how America can regain its preeminence globally. All sides of the political spectrum need to listen to this text, particularly Chapters 5 and 6 which give insight on how the new administration will execute America's Foreign Policy and National Security Strategy. Flynn has an excellent grasp of technology and how to leverage it to counter threats to this nation. #MakeAmerica SafeandGreatAgain!

    "Promising title but takes a narrow approach!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The books takes a one sided approach and provides a military man's perspective to this complex subject. It fails to be empathetic to the other side and does not present arguments for both sides.


    Has The Field of Fight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nope


    What aspect of Lt. General Michael T. Flynn’s performance would you have changed?

    The tone is a bit monotonous and stiff. Does sound like a military man! Sometimes its more of an order than story telling.


    What character would you cut from The Field of Fight?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    n/a

    "Fantastic revaluations of terror intelligence"

    One of the very best explanations of the full spectrum of terrorist activities, philosophy, etc. and how to defeat it I've ever read! A must read if you care about your freedoms and the future of democracy!

    "Timely and Essential"

    Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn lays out a very specific plan for defeating radical Islam based on his vast experience in the Middle East.

    Flynn's passionate reading of the text communicates the urgency of this cause

    Great listen! The clarity with which Flynn speaks/writes is most enlightening.
