Summary

To millions of people, Pat Tillman stands as the epitome of an American hero. On his way to stardom in the pros after a hugely successful college football career at Arizona State, where he graduated summa cum laude, he walked away from a multimillion-dollar NFL contract in response to the 9/11 attacks to enlist as a Ranger in the U.S. Army. On April 22, 2004, Pat Tillman was killed in Afghanistan in what the Administration and the Pentagon initially portrayed as a dramatic gun battle with the enemy. But in the weeks that followed, disturbing facts emerged. Army officials had been hiding the truth: Pat was killed by his fellow Rangers. In this compelling and deeply personal book, Mary Tillman shares the story of her son's extraordinary life and the Tillman family's impassioned and tenacious efforts to uncover the truth about what happened to him and how our government went to such great lengths to keep the circumstances secret. Today, despite seven investigations, five of them launched largely due to the family's insistence, what really happened remains murky and fraught with contradictions. Mary Tillman writes of her son's brief but remarkable life and the military's betrayal of him and his family. She paints an indelible portrait of the guiding principles that defined her son and that ultimately led him, in death, into the hearts and minds of people all over the world.
