Combat-decorated Marine Oliver North delivers a riveting firsthand account of the extraordinary young American volunteers--the best and bravest of their generation--who stepped forward to defend us from radical Islamic terror. For more than a dozen years North and his award-winning documentary team from FOX News Channel'sWar Stories have traveled to the frontlines of the War on Terror to profile the dedicated men and women who serve our nation in harm's way and chronicle what it truly means to be a hero. This time, he follows them from the battlefield to the homefront and finds extraordinary inspiration in their triumph over life-altering adversity. In this new volume of his New York Times bestselling American Heroes series, North describes in vivid detail the breathtaking courage, steadfast commitment, and resilient strength of those who serve--and those who love them. The term "selfless devotion" may be a cliché to many in our modern culture--but not to the men and women on the pages of this book. Their stories resound with bravery, a warrior ethos, and spiritual strength that ought to encourage us all. Heroes are people who knowingly place themselves at risk for the benefit of others. They give of themselves, literally and physically. Since the terror attack of 9-11- 01, more than 2 million young Americans have volunteered to serve in difficult and dangerous places. No military force in history has been asked to do more than those who have served and sacrificed in this long fight. They are American heroes. So too are their loved ones here at home. These are their stories.
A gripping, tightly crafted, action-packed thriller from the man President Ronald Reagan called "an American hero." #1 bestselling author Oliver North applies his extensive experience as a combat-decorated U.S. Marine and counterterrorism expert in this explosive novel of global intrigue, military action, and cutting-edge suspense. It's the year 2032, and the president claims America is now safe from terror. We're told Iranian nuclear weapons no longer menace our citizens. Leaders in Washington insist that United Nations treaties and innovative technologies can protect us and assure peace in our time. To save money, "Progressives," holding power in our capital, have cut the U.S. Armed Forces to the bone. But when the city of Houston is targeted by suicide bombers--and Dr. Martin Cohen, America's foremost physicist, is kidnapped--the brilliantly executed attack sends shock waves around the globe. The price of fuel skyrockets. With the U.S. economy on the brink of catastrophe, leaders in Washington look for a scapegoat--instead of our missing scientist. Enter Peter Newman, a highly decorated U.S. Marine war hero, veteran of multiple high-risk covert operations--and Naval Academy roommate of Dr. Marty Cohen. The precarious quest to find and rescue his friend puts the entire Newman family in lethal peril--and exposes the most ominous threat to the United States in our nation's history. Only someone who has actually "been there, done that" could write this book. Filled with heart-stopping action, authentic detail, and blistering tension, Heroes Proved is the most riveting work yet from national security expert, master novelist, and real-life war hero Oliver North.
Addressing, for the first time, the events that led to his trial, Oliver North explains his role in the Iran-Contra affair and discusses the involvement of other powerful politicos.-product description
