Walk in My Combat Boots Summary

Walk in My Combat Boots: True Stories from the Battlefront by James Patterson

'This book will take your breath away, break your heart, and leave you in awe' President Bill Clinton
_______

Soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines speak in their own words about real life in today's armed forces.


These are the brutally honest stories usually only shared amongst comrades in arms; stories of life-and-death decisions, and learning how to live with the effects of horrific injuries, both physical and mental. In the voices of the men and women who've fought overseas, from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, this is a rare eye-opening look into what it's really like to wear the uniform, fight in combat, lose friends and come home.

Walk in my Combat Boots is a powerful collection of never-before-told war stories crafted from hundreds of original interviews by James Patterson, the world's most trusted storyteller, and First Sergeant US Army (Ret.) Matt Eversmann, part of the Ranger unit involved in the infamous Battle of Mogadishu portrayed in the movie Black Hawk Down.

Walk in My Combat Boots Reviews

This book will take your breath away, break your heart, and leave you in awe -- President Bill Clinton
Raw, authentic, and above all, inspiring -- Admiral William H. McRaven, US Navy (Ret.)
Combat is hard to make sense of. Probably because, in many ways, it makes no sense. James Patterson and Matt Eversmann's unvarnished portrayal of soldiers is right on. Each of these stories of the personal experience of combat is unique, homespun, and honest. God bless them, one and all. -- Brigadier General Peter Dawkins, US Army (Ret.)
A vivid and authentic portrait of life in the modern military . . . Powerful. This edifying collection captures the highs and lows of the military experience. * Publishers Weekly *
Up close war is a tapestry of individual stories, as painfully raw, improbably funny, and completely human as the soldiers themselves. James Patterson and my former Ranger comrade Matt Eversmann, have brilliantly woven together an image that is as compelling as it is entertaining. -- Stanley A. McChrystal, General, US Army (Ret.)
