The Fight Of Our Lives Book Review

If you're looking for a book that lays out the truth about America's war on terrorism, then this is the book for you. I recently read The Fight of Our Lives, by William Bennett and Seth Leibsohn and published by Thomas Nelson. The book is smallish as books go, only a couple hundred pages, but what a wealth of information for Americans who truly care! 

I of course knew that politicians and the media were downplaying much of the religious element of terrorism, but was unaware of the great lengths they go to to make Islam seem like a peaceful religion, with just a few fanatics.  For example, when the Islamic terrorist went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood not so very long ago, the official Pentagon report failed to mention any hint of Islamic influence. Even though Major Nidal Hasan, the terrorist, shouted Allahu Akbar (Allah is great) while shooting and killing American military men and women. 
After reading this book, I had to go back and re-read some parts. It is an amazing wake up call to all who care about America, and the great Nation she once was. More, it is a call-to-arms for all Americans who believe that the war on terror is not only fought in foreign battlefields. Although the authors are Christian, I believe that any honest citizen (not just Christians) who is concerned for the country their children will inherit would be benefitted by reading The Fight of Our Lives. 

"Want to know the dirty little secret in the war on terror? Some of us have already surrendered.
Since the dreadful events of 9/11, America has waged an international war on terrorism. But are we prepared to win, or are we practicing surrender? We have foiled dozens of terrorist attacks since then. But while the Fort Dix terrorists were stopped, an Islamist terrorist at Fort Hood unleashed hell on American servicemen. Despite Maj. Nidal Hasan’s shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he pulled the trigger, the official Pentagon report refused to mention Islam or use the word Muslim. And said the army chief of staff, “As horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse.” As William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn show, for lack of clarity, conviction, and determination, America is on the verge of declaring preemptive cultural surrender in the war on terror. The Fight of Our Lives will reinvigorate the discussion and embolden those who wish to win the war on terror."
To purchase The Fight of Our Lives, visit your local bookseller, or purchase online through Amazon.
