Synopsis: What has the politics of the 90s done to America's armed forces? Has the culture of the fighting man - of duty, honor, and country - been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness? Jed Babbin's new novel, LEGACY OF VALOR, takes on these questions with an exciting mixture of explosive action, low politics, and high valor. LEGACY OF VALOR is the story of a Navy SEAL lieutenant, Cully O'Bannon, and his platoon or tough, smart adrenaline addicts. After carrying out a key mission on the eve of the Gulf War, Cully and his men return to a country now led by a man whose dislike for the military is only exceeded by his ineptness in foreign policy. The SEALs, now a target of budget cuts and social experimentation, face extinction when an accident in a rescue mission makes them the focus of the wrath of the President and his powerful allies in the Senate. The SEALs only hope is a beautiful staffer who works for a senator whose seniority is the best weapon in fighting ! for the SEALs' continued existence. Meanwhile, war is brewing in the Middle East. While the Senate pillories the SEALs in televised hearings, an unthinkable alliance of Russian terrorists-for-hire and Arab dictators is held in check only by the fear of American intervention. When the plan to threaten New York with nuclear blackmail unfolds, America must search for the weapon it has thrown away - Cully O'Bannon and his small band of men who have been scattered across the country in the Navy's efforts to obey the short-sighted demands of the politicians. LEGACY OF VALOR is a story of military life in the 90s, told from the standpoint of the professional soldier. It's a story laced with real military tactics, political satire torn from today's headlines, and enough action to satisfy the more hard-core adventure reader. In Cully O'Bannon, a new American hero is brought to life in this story of love, honor, and stubborn trust in the values that made America.
