American SoldierDownloadable Audiobook - 2004
Few individuals have the chance to contribute so much of themselves to the American story as General Tommy Franks. In American Soldier, he captures it all. The Commander in Chief of the United States Central Command from July 2000 through July 2003, General Tommy Franks made history leading American and Coalition forces to victory in Afghanistan and Iraq - the decisive battles that launched the war on terrorism. General Franks retraces his journey from a small-town boyhood through a lifetime of military service including his heroic tour as an Artillery officer in Vietnam, where he was wounded three times. Drawing on military records declassified for this book, Franks offers the first true insider's account of the war on terrorism. He puts you in the operations center for the launch of Operation Enduring Freedom just weeks after 9/11, capturing its uncertain early days and the historic victory that followed.
