Publisher Description

This edition has been updated to reflect new developments and includes new material obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

Pat Tillman walked away from a multimillion-dollar NFL contract to join the Army and became an icon of post-9/11 patriotism. When he was killed in Afghanistan two years later, a legend was born. But the real Pat Tillman was much more remarkable, and considerably more complicated than the public knew...

A stunning account of a remarkable young man's heroic life and death, from the bestselling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, and Under the Banner of Heaven.

When Men Win Glory

The book was not just about Pat's brief life and how his philosophies on life did not match society's expectation of a NFL player. It also discusses the realities of war. War is messy! Bad things happen, especially Friendly Fire. What is more astonishing is how our government covered up failures and atrocities to benefit a cause. The behavior is similar to what would be expected from a dictator.

Another great Krakauer read!

I've devoured nearly every book Krakauer has written. He is a superb wordsmith and story teller. This book was compelling and informative. I couldn't put it down.
