The Fight of our Lives: Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth and Choosing to Win the War against Radical Islam by William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn was an eye opening book to read. The authors explain terrorist attacks against the United States pre and post September 11, 2001. They examine the devolution of how our government has handled these attacks in the last 20 plus years. The authors take time to highlight how the government in the United States has adopted soft, apologetic political leadership and how they have allowed America to be in the pocket for radical Islamists. Bennett and Leibsohn take time to point out the lack of ambition our leaders have had in addressing terrorism within our own borders.
This book was captivating right from the very beginning. The authors do a phenomenal job explaining terrorist events that led up to 9/11 and how poorly they were handled. They explain that our Nation’s desire to be politically correct has hindered us from protecting our own citizens. The Fight of our Lives does a wonderful job helping readers to focus on where we have been and where we need to be and it helps readers to realize the immense threat we are facing.
