Description

"Wake Up America is a HUGE book. It will help to Make America Great Again." --Donald J. Trump

The Instant New York Times Bestseller, by President-elect Donald Trump's National Security Adviser.

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 thirty three 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.

  • Missed the forest for the trees

    The authors premise that radical Islam equates to totalitarian regimes in the 20th state. Given his conviction and patriotism considering how many soldiers died is entirely understandable. However, I have this book 2 stars because it completely misses the confluence of a rising population in impoverished geographic areas that due to climate change are dealing with less resources. For me, discussing radical Islam without reference to the fact these populations relative outlook is bleak is disingenuous.

    Every time the author starts an informative account he finds it necessary to brag first and foremost about his own accomplishments and how amazing he is at well....everything! I feel like I'm reading a detailed resume of the author and not so much about the supposed main theme of what the book should be about;ISIS.

    Great and informative book on what is really happening with those aligning themselves against the West. Wish it was required reading material for all Americans and government officials.
  • America needs more men like Gen. Flynn

    My primary concern about this book is not enough people, and not enough of the right people will read this book. Gen. Flynn is a modern day Paul Revere. I deeply hope that President Trump will consider him for either Secretary of Defense or head of national intelligence. He has clearly enunciated the threat to our civilization from Radical Islam, the total failure of President Obama to deal with it and specific actions America needs to take to defend our country and its values. Thank God our country still has leaders like Gen. Flynn. Frank Hawkins Tavernier, Fl
