Written with Matt Eversmann, the real-life hero of Black Hawk Down, James Patterson brings us true stories of life on the battlefront In Walk in My Combat Boots, men and women from all branches of the US military - Army, Navy Air Force, Marine Corps - share the moments of their service that matter most. These powerful true stories of courage, honour and duty from those who have sacrificed are at once humbling and inspiring. What defines them is the shared ethos- 'We all need to serve something bigger than ourselves.' Whether they're jumping out of planes, being shot at on the ground, or feeling like they might never get back home, 'When the fear shows up,' explains a Marine Corps rifleman, 'I tell myself I can do it - I will do it. And I do.' From armour technicians and tank commanders to truck drivers, from combat medics and flight nurses to psychological operatives, from training to deployment in country all across the globe - and post-tour life on the home front - each and every one of these heroes embodies the warrior spirit in their daily work.
