In 1978, Jerry Boykin joined what would become the world's premier Special Operations unit, Delta Force. The only promise: "A medal and a body bag." What followed was a .50 caliber round in the chest and a life spent with
's elite forces bringing down warlords and war criminals, despots, and dictators. In America , his task force hunted the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar. In Colombia , he helped capture the brutal dictator Manuel Noriega, liberating a nation. From Panama Vietnam to Iran to , Lt. General Jerry Boykin's life reads like an action-adventure novel. Boykin's powerful story will keep you riveted as he reveals how his military duty worked in tandem with his faith to bring him through the bloody storms of foreign battle-and through the political firestorm that ambushed him in his own country.
Lieutenant General Boykin's illustrious military career takes center stage in this personal account of religious faith in the proverbial foxhole. He was thrust into several harrowing encounters, such as the events portrayed in the film Black Hawk Down, the Iranian hostage crisis and the current war on terror. Boykin delivers frontline perspectives on the military missions in which he engaged, and the accounts are charged with excitement. Some may find his writing a bit polarizing; he is not subtle regarding his dislike for Democratic political figures like Jimmy Carter and John Kerry. Others will be inspired by how he faced death on a number of occasions and held tightly to his faith as a buoy through tumultuous and dark times. Toward the end of his career, Boykin began giving public talks, inspiring people to faith in God and to the ideals of the United States. While Boykin is to be commended for his patriotism, bravery and conviction, the book never successfully explains how his military career coexisted with some of the more pacifist tenets of Christianity.

There is no hocus pocus, over spiritualizing here. A great read of a regular guy, who wanted to follow a legacy of serving our country, the conflicts of living life, and trying to follow Jesus. Quick read, with action and detail. Loved that LTG Boykin didn't shy away from his questioning of God and His faithfulness in the midst of intense struggles. He also shows where and how God showed up. Great read!
Jessica Dowling5 Stars Out Of 5A great read.June 8, 2012Jessica DowlingI chose this book because I had read the two novels about Special Forces that General Boykin has written. I wanted to know his personal experiences as a Special Operations soldier
since I thought his background would be the basis for the two exciting novels he has written. I was not disappointed. I have a great admiration for the courage and dedication of our military.
