What is a Hero? New York Times best-selling author Oliver North says, "Real heroes are selfless. Those who serve America in harm's way in the war against radical Islam have that quality in abundance. And so do their families and loved ones at home. Yet, they rarely get the attention or coverage they deserve.


"Despite the way they are presented by too many in the press and politics, the men and women in uniform today are overwhelmingly good . I never cease to be amazed at the self-discipline of these brave young Americans. They can endure the adrenaline-pumping violence of an enemy engagement, and then, just minutes later, help school children get safely to their classes . . . No nation--ours included--has ever had a military force better than the one we have today. I'm proud of them. You should be too."

In American Heroes (a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post best seller), North offers an inspiring, first-hand account of the extraordinary men and women defending America against radical Islamic terror from his perspective as a forty year member of the United States military, a member of the National Security Council staff and serving as the U.S. government's counter-terrorism coordinator from 1983-1986. This patriotic book also pulls in new reports and exclusive full-color photographs from War Stories , the award-winning FOX News Channel series hosted by North.

Endorsements

"Oliver North has spent his life among America's heroes. This book with its moving words and powerful images will inspire patriots, reassure the faint of heart, and infuriate our nation's adversaries. These are our heroes, they deserve to have their story told, and no one is better to tell it than Col. North, because when it comes to heroes, it takes one to know one. This book is a treasure."

-- Newt Gingrich , former Speaker of the House of Representatives and New York Times bestselling author of Real Change

"Ollie North has 'been there--done that' with the American heroes who are winning the war against radical Islamic terror. This book is a magnificent tribute to the warriors who defend us all."

-- Sean Hannity , host of The Sean Hannity Show and FOX News Channel's Hannity & Colmes
