9781592766970: The Archbishop Wore Combat Boots: From Combat to Camelot to Katrina -- A Memoir of an Extraordinary Life

Whether parachuting behind enemy lines...jumping into a Secret Service sedan for a White House meeting with JFK...or navigating the swirling flood waters of a hurricane...New Orleans' Archbishop Philip Hannan knows only one way to operate: totally committed and full speed ahead!

The embodiment of "The Greatest Generation," Archbishop Hannan's intellect, wit, generosity, and work ethic were unparalleled when fighting for what he believed in: the dangers of fascism, the preservation of the Faith, the inherent, if unforeseen, pitfalls in advising politicians on Church doctrine.

Grab a front row seat on this extraordinary man's always fascinating, ever-humbling journey as he makes his mark on the pivotal events of the 20th century--the second World War, the Kennedy presidency, Vatican II, the integration of the South, Hurricane Katrina.

Go behind the scenes as Archbishop Philip Hannan--at age 97, still the quintessential priest and American--details the events, pressures, decisions, and emotions of his one-of-a-kind experiences...proving, once again, the impact that one human being can have on history.

Review:

"The Archbishop Wore Combat Boots is a riveting tale of heroism, sacrifice and public service by a charter member of the greatest generation. Archbishop Hannan's life as a priest went from foxholes to the Vatican to the parishes of Louisiana and the confidence of Jackie Kennedy. It is a story of faith, friendship and dedication told with with wit and wisdom." ----Tom Brokaw

"The extraordinary story of a man who, living through seminal American history -- Battle of the Bulge, Kennedy's White House, Hurricane Katrina counseled the giants making it happen...written as if readers were seeing, feeling it themselves." --Ed Rollins, author and CNN Senior Political Analyst

"Archbishop Hannan has always been in the forefront of our country's best interest." --Newt Gingrich
