Summary

From FOX & Friends Weekend cohost Pete Hegseth comes a collection of inspiring stories from 15 of America’s greatest heroes - highly decorated Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, marines, Purple Heart recipients, combat pilots, a Medal of Honor recipient, and more - based on FOX Nation’s hit show of the same name.

After three Army deployments - earning two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman’s Badge - Pete Hegseth knows what it takes to be a modern warrior. In Modern Warriors, he presents candid, unfiltered conversations with fellow modern warriors and digs for real answers to key questions like: What inspired them to serve? What is their legacy? What does sacrifice really mean to them? How do they handle loss? And what can civilians learn from this latest generation of veterans?

From the skies over Afghanistan to the seas of the Mediterranean to the treacherous streets of Iraq, these brave men and women take you inside the firefight, sharing the harrowing realities of war. Hegseth uses their experiences to facilitate conversations about the raw truths of combat, including the difficulties of transitioning back home, while also celebrating these soldiers’ contributions to preserving our nation’s most precious gift - freedom.

These stories provide an unvarnished representation of battlefield leadership, military morale, and the strain of war. This book is the perfect for anyone who wants to know what it means, and what it truly takes, to be a patriot. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

My take away.

My take away. The amazing stories about service in the military and what it’s like to come back to the world. The experiences of the lady Air force aviation specialist and the black man that was a Ranger sniper and being them being some first in their fields and their treatment needs to told from their viewpoint. Addressing their viewpoints on sex and race, society is like a new child learning to walk. Society will stumble and fall and pick itself up and keep on going preferably to the advantage of all. Note to Pete, any book that makes me laugh pays for itself. Great book you might try to do some more of these.

Evan's Review

Great books. Real modern warriors. What makes this book great is the real characters tell there stories of battles and the men and women they worked with. The whole inrerwinding story though out the book is the team and brotherhood they had with one another. Each give the team the credit for their success. What is interested even though they were warriors each had issues returning to civilian life and the struggles they face. Pete does a good job at narration throughout the book. I enjoyed the book so much I ordered a hard copy to let my friends read. I will then donate it to my local library.
