Kirkus Reviews, 11/1/13 "Robinson ably discusses the intricacies of military justice...Captures the folly and resource drain of the Iraq War...Should appeal to conservative readers." Washington Times, 11/13/13 "In this very important book, author Patrick Robinson shows how the culture of our military is imperiled by a high command that too frequently allows political correctness to trump honor and common sense." Cape Cod Times, 11/10/13 "This is a story of war waged in a distant place, and the role of modern media to open doors for the bad guys but get the bigger story straight--eventually." Booklist Online, 11/22/13 "It's a tale that is guaranteed to raise eyebrows and spark debate. Written in an even-keeled, reportorial style, the book tells a story we wish had never happened, but one that certainly needs to be told." The American Spectator, 11/26/13 "The book's account of the high command's intimidation tactics should be required reading for all military personnel today." Sacramento Book Review, December 2013 "If you are looking for a strong read, this is a no-brainer." Bookviews blog, December 2013 "A case history of why morale in our armed forces today has been savaged by the 'political correctness' that has been imposed on all the services...This is a story worth reading as a lesson of how far our military have strayed from its values under the pressure of an administration that gives greater credence to the word of a terrorist than to its own heroes." BookNews.com, December 2013 "[A] dramatic narrative account." WomanAroundTown.com, 1/21/14 "[A] war story that's not for sissies...[Robinson] doesn't pretend to be impartial--as evidenced by the title--but he is honest and straightforward in telling how a team of Navy Seals captured the notorious terrorist Ahmad Hashim Abd Al-Isawi...Many have claimed that 'military justice' is an oxymoron, and this story backs up that assertion."
