During the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Brigadier General Douglas A. Pritt directed relief efforts in the infamous Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. From the unique and inside perspective of the general’s aide-de-camp comes the story of the National Guard response to the greatest natural disaster in American history.

In Guard Against the Storm, General Pritt demonstrates his remarkable leadership and success during Hurricane Katrina and is subsequently selected to lead the massive and complex response to Hurricane Rita, the largest military operation on US soil since the Civil War. This story is about the struggles and triumphs of America’s citizen-soldiers and it explores the true nature of joint local, state, and federal cooperation between civilian and military forces during times of severe crisis.
