9780895260376: War Stories: Operation Iraqi Freedom

The mainstream media are trying to discredit our victory in Iraq by saying there was no reason to take out Saddam. But Oliver North knows better. He was there. Embedded with Marine and Army units for FOX News Channel during Operation Iraqi Freedom, North (himself a decorated combat veteran) vividly tells the story his camera gave us glimpses of during the campaign to liberate Iraq. This updated edition features a new chapter detailing the events after the end of major hostilities—including the capture of Saddam Hussein—and brand-new action photos straight from the front line.

From the Inside Flap:

The mainstream media are trying to discredit our victory in Iraq by saying there was no reason to take out Saddam. But Oliver North knows better. He was there. Contrary to some of the media's willing inaccuracies, in War Stories: Operation Iraqi Freedom you'll witness: * How an arsenal was provided to Saddam by so-called friends of the United States * Evidence of equipment used to disperse chemical weapons * The uncovering of huge caches of Iraqi weapons stored in hospitals, schools, and mosques * Evidence of terrorist bases and weapons in Iraq * The connection between captured terrorists and Saddam's regime North sweeps aside the empty secondhand chatter of liberal pundits in this riveting eyewitness account of the heroism, courage, and unflagging patriotism of the American military forces who ended Saddam Hussein's bloody tyranny. Embedded with Marine and Army units for FOX News Channel during Operation Iraqi Freedom, North (himself a decorated combat veteran) vividly tells the story his camera gave us glimpses of during the campaign to liberate Iraq. From the opening seconds of the war-when North witnessed the conflict's first American and British casualties-all the way to the takeover of Saddam's hometown of Tikrit, War Stories lets you see the war in Iraq not as the liberal media wants you to see it, but as it unfolded before the eyes of those who fought it.

North gives insights into Operation Iraqi Freedom that only a warrior could provide. And he introduces you to the young warriors who put their lives on the line-the victors who now hope that their stunning triumph won't be stolen by naysayers, critics, and the antiwar crowd. With the authority of an eyewitness and the expertise of a combat veteran, North succinctly skewers the conventional view of the Iraq war, asking simply: "What quagmire?" He unblinkingly refutes accusations of Pentagon planning blunders, shortages of food, fuel, and ammunition, rejection by the Iraqi people, and expectations of huge American casualties. Now that the media establishment's embedded correspondents have returned home, those who have their quills in poison ink have the forum. But Oliver North isn't about to let them rewrite history. He offers here a trustworthy chronicle of the remarkable military force that did nothing less in Iraq than surpass all others in history: no military advance has ever gone so far, so fast, and with so few casualties. 7Filled with North's trademark honest, in-depth, and inspiring reporting, this is a gripping and insightful look at the latest crop of American and coalition heroes-those who fought and won Operation Iraqi Freedom.
