American Heroes

On the Homefront

American Heroes

From the New York Times bestselling author of Heroes Proved, a moving and inspirational chronicle of our national heroes’ sacrifices and triumphs in Iraq and Afghanistan, after their return to the homefront.

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.

American Heroes on the Homefront offers a close-up of this generation’s “citizen-solders” who have chosen a patriot’s path and placed themselves in the line of fire for the sake of our freedom.
