Few people Know the ways of discipling the mind to attain a focused resourceful and sober thinking for utmost mental health, Greg Mortenson has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children s crusader and he s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize He is also not what he appears to be As acclaimed author Jon Krakauer discovered Mortenson has not only fabricated substantial parts of his bestselling books i Three Cups of Tea i and i Stones into Schools i but has also misused millions of dollars donated by unsuspecting admirers like Krakauer himself br br This is the tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong, b The bestselling author of i Into the Wild i i Into Thin Air i and i Under the Banner of Heaven i delivers a stunning eloquent account of a remarkable young man s haunting journey b br br Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast In May Tillman walked away from his million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army He was deeply troubled by and he felt a strong moral obligation to join the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban Two years later he died on a desolate hillside in southeastern Afghanistan br br Though obvious to most of the two dozen soldiers on the scene that a ranger in Tillman s own platoon had fired the fatal shots the Army aggressively maneuvered to keep this information from Tillman s wife other family members and the American public for five weeks following his death During this time President Bush repeatedly invoked Tillman s name to promote his administration s foreign policy Long after Tillman s nationally televised memorial service the Army grudgingly notified his closest relatives that he had probably been killed by friendly fire while it continued to dissemble about the details of his death and who was responsible br br In i Where Men Win Glory i Jon Krakauer draws on Tillman s journals and letters interviews with his wife and friends conversations with the soldiers who served alongside him and extensive research on the ground in Afghanistan to render an intricate mosaic of this driven complex and uncommonly compelling figure as well as the definitive account of the events and actions that led to his death Before he enlisted in the army Tillman was familiar to sports aficionados as an undersized overachieving Arizona Cardinals safety whose virtuosity in the defensive backfield was spellbinding With his shoulder length hair outspoken views and boundless intellectual curiosity Tillman was considered a maverick America was fascinated when he traded the bright lights and riches of the NFL for boot camp and a buzz cut Sent first to Iraq a war he would openly declare was illegal as hell and eventually to Afghanistan Tillman was driven by complicated emotionally charged sometimes contradictory notions of duty honor justice patriotism and masculine pride and he was determined to serve his entire three year commitment But on April his life would end in a barrage of bullets fired by his fellow soldiers br br Krakauer chronicles Tillman s riveting tragic odyssey in engrossing detail highlighting his remarkable character and personality while closely examining the murky heartbreaking circumstances of his death Infused with the power and authenticity readers have come to expect from Krakauer s storytelling i Where Men Win Glory i exposes shattering truths about men and war br i From the inside cover of ISBN i, A bank of clouds was assembling on the not so distant horizon but journalist mountaineer Jon Krakauer standing on the summit of Mt Everest saw nothing that suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down He was wrong The storm which claimed five lives and left countless more including Krakauer s in guilt ridden disarray would also provide the impetus for i Into Thin Air i Krakauer s epic account of the May disaster
