This audiobook is read by the author.
A war is being waged against us by radical Islamists, and, as current events demonstrate, they are only getting stronger. Al-Qaeda has morphed into a much more dangerous, menacing threat: ISIS. Lt. General Michael T. Flynn is blunt and urgent. This book aims to inform the American people of the grave danger we face in the war on terror - and will continue to face - until our government takes decisive action against the terrorists that want nothing more than to destroy us and our way of life.
Flynn spent more than 33 years in Army intelligence, and as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency worked closely with Generals Stanley McChrystal and David Petraeus, Admiral Mike Mullen, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and other policy, defense, intelligence, and war-fighting leaders. From coordinating on-the-ground operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, to building reliable intelligence networks, to preparing strategic plans for fighting terrorism, Flynn has been a firsthand witness to government screw-ups, smokescreens, and censored information that our leaders don't want us to know.
The Field of Fight succinctly lays out why we have failed to stop terrorist groups from growing, and what we must do to stop them. The core message is that if you understand your enemies, it's a lot easier to defeat them - but because our government has concealed the actions of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and the role of Iran in the rise of radical Islam, we don't fully understand the enormity of the threat they pose against us.
A call to action that is sensible, informed, and original, The Field of Fight asserts that we must find a way to not only fight better, but to win.

Go Get 'Em General

The book tied up a number of loose ends between Iran v. Shia v. Shite. Required reading for our times!

Very Good

Would you listen to The Field of Fight again? Why?

This was easy to listen to. I learned a lot listening to Lt. Gen Flynn recount war stories.
