Summary
  • "Featuring all the action and up-close reporting of the original "American Heroes" (over 100,000 sold), this edition includes a new chapter from the front in Afghanistan, adding to the more than 300 full-color images depicting today's 'citizen-soldiers' who have chosen the path of the patriot."--P [4] of cover
  • North details the earliest terrorism faced by the United States in the 1800s at the hands of the Barbary Pirates, the major terrorist group developments of the 1970s and 80s, and, most vividly, the post-9/11 Iraq War era. His up-close field notes highlight the core values of today's American soldier in relation to the fight at hand
