Walk in My Combat Boots

True Stories from America's Bravest Warriors

From #1 bestselling author and master storyteller James Patterson, and Matt Eversmann, First Sergeant, USA (Ret.), the decorated war hero immortalized in the film Black Hawk Down, come firsthand wartime experiences of American military.

The sacrifices of service are indescribable — except by those who have made them. Their personal stories of battlefield life reveal:

– The goal to “be ready every day, every single day,” — and how that can quickly descend into chaos.
– The realization that every solider must be “okay with dying, consciously or subconsciously, to be good at this job.”
– How “we all need to serve something bigger than ourselves.”

Men and women from every branch of the US military and every occupational specialty tell exactly how it feels to jump out of airplanes, to be boots on the ground, to shoot and be shot at, and to recognize that they might never get back home. “When the fear shows up,” explains a Marine Corps rifleman, “I tell myself I can do it–I will do it. And I do.”

Walk in My Combat Boots offers the honest words of our heroes, the true stories of our sons and daughters.

Praise

"Up close war is a tapestry of individual stories, as painfully raw, improbably funny, and completely human as the soldiers themselves. James Patterson and my former Ranger comrade Matt Eversmann, have brilliantly woven together an image that is as compelling as it is entertaining."—Stanley A. McChrystal, General, US Army, Retired
"James Patterson is one of America's great storytellers. He is also a first-rate reporter. He and Matt Eversmann have collected stories of brave men and women who have defended our country. Each one is a profile in courage. Read this book and you will have even greater respect for those who serve in our military."—Chris Wallace, anchor Fox News Sunday
