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 33 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.

To all people who not understand the people that are trying to kill us who do not like our way of life! Helps you understand is Jihad is and what our warriors are doing to keep us safe at night and day!
This was easy to listen to. I learned a lot listening to Lt. Gen Flynn recount war stories.
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.
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.
Narrated by the author. Talked fast, but he is very passionate about the story. The fact that all these problems were brought on ourselves and we are now living from the Karma. it really starts from the invasion of Kuwait because of our petrodollar deal with Saudi.
The book starts with a short autobiography which lets you get to know the author. Next, his years of early service which snapped his views. Then, he gets to the problem, and the hard message of what needs to be done. Practical and thoughtful.
The truth behind the international workings of ISIS straight from the man who has been professionally and directly involved be fight. I love that LTG Flynn himself narrated it, let's us get to know him. Everyone in America that values our freedom need to know and get behind the things articulated here.
LT. General Flynn opens your eyes to what the next President, will need to do in order to DEFEAT radical Islam. The PC campaign being waged on our military and citizens have weakened the nation and strengthened our adversaries.
