I recently had the pleasure of meeting New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter when he visited Tantor Audio to record his latest book, Mastermind: The Many Faces of the 9/11 Architect, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. It turns out his father was a Marine so I gave him a copy of my book. He kindly posted the following review on Amazon today:

5.0 out of 5 stars  History needs Heroes--and Marines have always been mine, May 14, 2011 By Richard Miniter -- New York Times best-selling author of Shadow War and Losing bin Laden

If you've got a Marine in the family, this is an ideal Father's Day, birthday, or Marine Corps birthday (November 10) gift. It is accessible, interesting and puts individual Marines at the heart of the story. Too often in schools today they teach that individuals don't make history but impersonal forces (economic trends, class, race, whatever) do; this book implicitly reminds us that individual choices do actually drive great historical events. Bravery and courage do matter and do change history. Also, too many school teachers say they "don't want to teach the wars," leaving generations in the dark about great turning points in our shared history. Does Belleau Wood or Henderson Field mean anything to you? If not, you need to read this book. It is a fast-paced, interesting read and will make you feel better once you've read it.                                                                                                                            Richard Miniter
