Since 9-11-01, North and his award-winning 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 for Fox News Channel. With extensive experience as a decorated military officer, a counter-terrorism expert, and as a documentary filmmaker embedded with American combat units, he has a unique perspective on the enemy we face and the qualities of those who protect us.
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. North's unprecedented access, his grasp of history and his lucid reports from the crucible of combat make this a stirring chronicle of courage, commitment, compassion and faith.
Thank God for American heroes.
I listened to this book in a couple of days. Oliver North did a great job recording recent history and giving recocnition to those who gave their lives for it.

I bought this book to hear about individual stories of our military personnel. About 20% of the book gives actual experiences of people in Iraq. The remainder is a pep rally for the war.
