Summary
Combat-decorated marine Oliver North delivers a powerful, riveting firsthand account of the extraordinary young American volunteers defending us against radical Islamic terror. Since September 11, North and his award-winning War Stories documentary team have made a dozen extended trips to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Philippines, interviewing US soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and marines. Combining North' s extensive experience as a military officer, a counter-terrorism expert, and a documentary filmmaker embedded with American combat units, 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
Summary
The decorated Marine, host of the War Stories documentary series and best-selling author of Heroes Proved presents a first-hand account of the stories of extraordinary Americans who volunteered to fight against terrorism after the September 11 attacks
