Publisher's Summary

The Instant New York Times Best Seller

This audiobook is read by the author.

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.

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.

Go Get 'Em General

The book tied up a number of loose ends between Iran v. Shia v. Shite. Required reading for our times!

Very Good

Would you listen to The Field of Fight again? Why?

This was easy to listen to. I learned a lot listening to Lt. Gen Flynn recount war stories.

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.

The story you did not know.

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.

Lt Gen Flynn Narrating His Own Book is Priceless

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.

When a warrior-poet with this much experience talks, we should listen to what he has to say

General Flynn has been involved in gathering intelligence for every US war effort and security since Grenada, as he outlines in Field of Fight.”

He is not giving his thoughts as an outside observer sourcing open source info and other accounts - he has more first-hand knowledge of the greatest threats to our nation than possibly any other person on the planet.

So when he says that he cannot win a war in which we refuse to name the greatest enemies to our nation, we should listen. He’s one of the few geopolitical pundits to have the first-hand knowledge and experience to know how to win our battles.

A great, insightful and entertaining listen for anyone who wants to know what happened behind the scenes for the past few decades of our military history and best way forward to tackle our current threats.
