The Faith of the American Soldier
What goes through the mind of an American warrior spiritually and religiously when facing the enemy?
Touching on a subject that few books have treated, The Faith of the American Soldier examines the religious and spiritual issues in America's wars, and then considers what is lost to our military through a secular approach to battle. Stephen Mansfield, author of The Faith of George W. Bush, a New York Times bestseller, records the refelctionsand testimonies of men and women who have fought on the front lines from Lexington to Iraq.
"This book is the product of a search for the meaning of the American warrior code and the faith that gave it birth," Mansfield writes. " A nation's warrior code is an extension of its soul, the embodiment of its highest ideals."
