“James Patterson's American Heroes  is a compelling work of nonfiction that should not be missed. A riveting chronicle of valor, humanity, and sacrifice, the diverse stories within the book's pages represent the very threads that hold our flag together.”
—Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Chaos Agent, a Gray Man novel
​“America at its best: ordinary Americans who found extraordinary courage and helped write our proud history in the process.” 
—Congressman Seth Moulton, Captain, US Marine Corps (Ret.)

American Heroes delivers compelling accounts of men and women at war. You can almost hear the bullets as you read these powerful stories told by and about selfless warriors. It’s a striking reminder that America’s highest awards for valor are more often earned by saving lives than by taking them.”
—ADM E. T. Olson, USN (Ret.), former CDR (USSOCOM)

“American Heroes is a gripping collection of firsthand accounts that plunges you into the heart of battle, told by those who lived it. Patterson and Eversmann deliver a raw, unflinching look at valor and sacrifice, capturing the indomitable spirit of our nation’s finest. This book is a tribute to courage that will leave you breathless and inspired." 
—Jack Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Terminal List series

From the authors of Walk in My Combat Boots, bravery and selflessness are literally defined in these riveting first-person tales from our nation’s greatest heroes.

U.S. soldiers who served in overseas conflicts—from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan—share true stories of the actions that earned them some of America’s most distinguished military medals, up to and including the Medal of Honor. 
They never acted alone, but always in the spirit of camaraderie, patriotism, and for the good of our beloved country. 
There has never been a better time for all of us to think about duty, sacrifice, and what it means to be an American hero.
