Held captive for 21 days in numerous secret Saddam Hussein prisons at the onset of the Liberation of Iraq in March 2003, Army Specialist Edgar Hernandez and six other brave soldiers feared for their lives as they faced brutal treatment and near-death situations right up until their dramatic rescue. When his convoy came under attack from heavy enemy fire, Hernandez was shot and hit by grenade shrapnel in the face. Bleeding profusely, he and several other soldiers (including Jessica Lynch who would be held in a different location), were taken prisoner. Pawns in a tug of war between an armed militia, the Fedayeen who wanted them executed, and Iraq s elite Special Republican Guard who became their captors, the American soldiers were beaten and paraded as war trophies to a bloodthirsty Iraqi mob as death seemed eminent. Racing in a Red Cross ambulance at 100mph through the streets of Iraq, the POWs dodged missile fire from U.S. Marines, thinking Iraqi officers were trying to escape; unaware the captive soldiers were inside. Read in his own words, Hernandez describes the anguish he felt during this horrendous ordeal. Endorsed by Major General Alfred Valenzuela, a highly decorated 33-year Army veteran, he declares Hernandez s biography as a thrilling account of heroism in time of war. Make sure to stock up on Edgar Hernandez: POW - An American Hero, a riveting read destined to be a New York Times Best Seller.
