The year is 2032. The NRA has been outlawed; the U.S. military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground.

"The story was pretty good, but the narrator wasn't"
The explosive new thriller from Oliver North, who stormed best seller lists nationwide with his disarmingly authentic military novel Heroes Proved, is a gripping, nonstop tale that could only be written by someone who has "been there, done that". Veteran undercover FBI agent Jake Kruse is investigating a smuggling ring in southern California when his assignment is cut short. A prominent criminal defense attorney wants to hire Jake on another kind of mission: to kill the daughter of a local crime boss.
"Write more....Couldn't stop listening!!"
In War Stories III: The Heroes Who Defeated Hitler, Marine combat veteran Lt. Colonel Oliver North gives you a chance to revisit the frontlines with infantrymen slugging their way up the boot of Italy, bomber pilots threading the shell bursts over Germany, and sailors of the U.S. Navy and Merchant Marines dueling German U-Boats in the icy Atlantic. The whole panoramic spectacle of the war in Europe is here, from the perspectives of American, British, Russian, French, and even German individuals who saw history unfold before their eyes.
As an embedded journalist in Iraq, North got a soldier's-eye view, often while under fire, of what the mainstream media failed to report. A decorated combat veteran, North watched Operation Iraqi Freedom with trained eyes unmatched by other journalists. What he witnessed compelled him to challenge post-war critics of the operation for their uninformed and deceptive views.
American Heroes on the Homefront gives a unique perspective on the situation our nation faces and the qualities of those who protect us, as well as the true impact of their sacrifices on their families and loved ones.
Oliver North offers an inspiring, first-hand account of the extraordinary young American volunteers defending us against radical Islamic terror.
Since 9-11-01, North and his War Stories documentary team have made a dozen extended trips to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Philippines, covering U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen, and Marines. American Heroes offers a close-up of this generation's "citizen-soldiers" who have chosen the path of the patriot and gone into harm's way for their countrymen.
New York Times best-selling author Oliver North, popular host of FOX News Channel's top-rated War Stories program, provided an insightful look at Operation Iraqi Freedom in the first hard-hitting book based on his show. Now in this second book, North shares the accomplishments of the heroic men who fought in the Pacific theater of World War II.
