I knew of the Pat Tillman story as a professional athlete / patriot who died tragically and, possibly, unnecessarily. This book, which I happened to pick up as a spur of the moment read, was riveting. There was as much to Pat Tillman as a man, a son, and a husband as there was to Pat Tillman as an athlete and soldier. His death was a great loss to his wife, his family, his sport, the Army, and possibly society in general.
The actions of the US Government and the Army immediately following Tillman's death were shameful and deplorable. I find myself believing more and more that the greatest threat to world peace in 2012 is the neo-conservative government of the United States and the information in this book certainly reinforces that belief.
Still, at the end of the day, this was a very interesting story of a promising young man whose life was wasted by war. How many more will there be?
