Product Description

As a SEAL commander, Rorke Denver is uniquely qualified to answer questions about what makes a hero or a leader, why men kill, how best to serve your country, how battlefield experiences can elevate us, and most importantly, why we fight and what it does for and to us. In Worth Dying For, Denver tackles many of these issues by sharing his personal experiences from the forefront of war today.
Denver applies some of his SEAL-sense to nine big-picture, news-driven questions of war and peace, in a way that appeals to all sides of the public conversation. By broadening the issues, sharing his insights, and achieving what civilian political leaders have been utterly unable to, Denver eloquently shares answers to America’s most burning questions about war, heroism, and what it all means for America’s future.

Editorial Reviews

Rorke Denver isn’t just a fierce American warrior. He’s a first-rate thinker, too. Keeping America safe requires both those talents now.”
Worth Dying For is simply essential for those making key decisions about their lives, in and out of uniform, but especially all of those thinking about the special forces at the tip of the American spear.
An inspiring, MUST READ . . . should be mandatory for anyone looking for the guidelines to becoming a better human being.

    Rorke Denver and Ellis Henican in their new book, Worth Dying For published by Howard Books gives us A Navy SEALs Call to a Nation.

    From the Back Cover: When you are a Navy SEAL, you learn first-hand what it means to put your life on the line. And you learn pretty quickly that there are truly things worth dying for. In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about Americas past decade at warfrom what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us.

    Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to contribute, or the wives who keep the families together back home. Even a SEAL commanderespecially a SEAL commanderknows that. But whats a hero, really? What do we have a right to expect from our heroes? How should we hold them accountable? Amid all the loose talk of heroes, these questions are seldom asked.

    As a SEAL commander, Rorke Denver is uniquely qualified to answer questions about what makes a hero or a leader, why men kill, how best to serve your country, how battlefield experiences can elevate us, and most importantly, why we fight and what it does for and to us. In Worth Dying For, Denver tackles many of these issues by sharing his personal experiences from the forefront of war today.

    Denver applies some of his SEAL-sense to nine big-picture, news-driven questions of war and peace, in a way that appeals to all sides of the public conversation. By broadening the issues, sharing his insights, and achieving what civilian political leaders have been utterly unable to, Denver eloquently shares answers to Americas most burning questions about war, heroism, and what it all means for Americas future.

    This our country, from sea to shining sea: The United States Of America. I am not sure what our youth are taught now however when I was growing up we were taught if we served in our military then we should be prepared to die in our Countrys service. Commander Denver was a Navy SEAL serving overseas and he has written this book to address ten pressing issues: What Makes A Hero, How To Be Brave, The Right and Wrong Ways To Kill, Bridging The Military-Civilian Divide, What We Really Owe Our Returning Veterans. Commander Denver tells us there will be a lot of talk about service, which is where everything else begins. This is our country. It is great. It has the potential to be greater still. This book will help us get there. This is a book that will help you see the greatness God has put here. This is also a book that will make a great gift to friends and family so that they can have a mind-change about the wonder of this country as well..

    Worth Dying For is a very interesting and inspiring read. Rorke delivers a deep message of understanding for people without understanding of the military world. Worth Dying For certainly delivers some very fine points on being a leader, when it is right and when it is wrong to kill, what we can do more for those who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, and being of service in one way or another.

    In each of the ten chapters, Rorke addresses some major issues that some people (perhaps many) are fully unaware of or choose to ignore. This book shows what SEALs are capable of and Rorke certainly delivers some lessons that we civilians can learn from: leadership, service, thoughtful, and open-minded. I would recommend this book to others because it shows what the military stands and fights for. And because I believe that God has a plan for Rorke to bring understanding to civilians and members of our military.

    Thank you for your service Rorke and God bless.
