Synopsis

The mainstream media are trying to discredit our victory in Iraq by saying there was no reason to take out Saddam. But Oliver North knows better. He was there. Embedded with Marine and Army units for FOX News Channel during Operation Iraqi Freedom, North (himself a decorated combat veteran) vividly tells the story his camera gave us glimpses of during the campaign to liberate Iraq. This updated edition features a new chapter detailing the events after the end of major hostilities—including the capture of Saddam Hussein—and brand-new action photos straight from the front line.

Scoop

On a more personal level, Victory At Point 209/Ngarimu: Te Tohu Toa is an adventure narrative I would have loved to read alongside Charlie’s War and V for Vengeance when I was young, and I think both my granddads would have liked to read it with me.
