The Fight of Our Lives

I received a copy of The Fight of Our Lives Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth, and Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam by William Bennett with Seth Leibsohn from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review.
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.
I'm trying to be more informed before the next presidental election and reading books like this have been very helpful.  The Fight of Our Lives is an eye-opening book on the evolution of American policy toward Radical Islam and Terrorism.   It is an amazing wake up call to all who care about America, and the great Nation she once was.  This book by Bennett and Leibsohn chronicles the 10 year period between September 11, 2001 and now. It shows what has happened, what could happen, and what needs to happen to be sure this never happens again.  It is both a history lesson and a call to action.
