AS A RETURNING NAVY VETERAN OF THE VIET NAM WAR, AND A STUDENT OF COMMUNICATIONS AND BROADCAST JOURNALISM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS, I SAW AND FELT THE EFFECTS OF JOHN KERRY'S ACTIONS ON THOSE OF US WHO FOUGHT IN AND RETURNED FROM THAT HORRIBLE WAR. THIS BOOK CAPTURED WHO I AM AND HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE TRAITOROUS ACTIONS OF THIS INDIVIDUAL AND THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA THAT SUPPORTED HIS LIES. I WILL RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AS REQUIRED READING FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT JOHN KERRY AND ABOUT THE LIBERAL BIAS OF THE MEDIA THAT SUPPORTS HIM AND THE REST OF THE PROGRESSIVE ESTABLISHMENT. LIKE THE MAJORITY OF THE VETS WHO ROSE IN OPPOSITION TO KERRY I FEEL THAT THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS BUT ABOUT THE PERSON AND A MEDIA BIAS THAT ENABLED HIM TO SUCCEED TO THE POINT OF ALMOST BECOMING OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF. THIS INDIVIDUAL SHOULD NOT BE IN A POSITION TO INFLUENCE THE DIRECTION OF OUR COUNTRY. HE SHOULD BE TRIED AND HANGED FOR THE TRAITOR THAT HE IS AND THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA THAT SUPPORTS HIM AND HIS KIND, SHOULD BE DISBANDED AND CONSIGNED TO THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY, FOR NOT DOING ITS JOB AND VETTING HIS TRAITOROUS PAST.

I knew some of the Swifties before the Kerry campaign, and was one of the first to donate to their cause because I knew they were not liars and were men of honor. Their critics know nothing about the military and how the great majority take care of our own. Kerry came in to "game" the system and most people around him recognized him as not one of the team, but they did not realize how much he was in it for himself and not for his men and/or the country! And Kerry will still not release ALL of his Navy records, no matter what he and his supporters say! There are holes in his records big enough to put a Swift Boat through them!
This book sorts out and clears up everything not fully explained in Unfit for Command. The critics of this book are again the Liars of the Left who believe everyone is like them and will lie and cheat to get ahead. They still do not get us and it is VERY clear to every veteran!
Every veteran should read this book and confirm all of their suspicions about Kerry and his supporters. Many of them are still actively trying to discredit all veterans but they cannot win. Take a look at all of their "legal" cases against the Swifties!!! If they had proof, why did they not continue their cases in the courts!

Possibly the best book I have ever read. It's too bad the media and money protect criminals like Kerry. I suggest everyone in
America read this book. It reinforces and brings to light facts I already knew about this traitor.

It was a great story. The real truth !!

Army veteran, two combat tours in VN, 20-year career, retired Lt. Col., writer of novels and writer references.

I'd seen parts of this story online and kept up with the Swift Vets in the campaign against Kerry. This book dug its talons into me and wouldn't let go until I'd finished. Overnight.

Astonishing that Kerry would be so blind as to expect to be either lionized or ignored by those he condemned. I was a contemporary witness to and victim of his attack on vets as war criminals.

Frightening that he would be the first VN vet president.

Astonishing that O'Neill and the others, including Scott Swett, were exactly the right people at the right time, so eloquent, so well-researched, so relentless against the ruthlessness of an enemy allied with and tougher than the VC and NVA.

Frightening that the old media would even risk disgrace rather than keep an open mind and tell the simple truth.

Astonishing. And frightening. That Carville and Davis and McDougald could be allowed to scream at O'Neill and that John was exactly the right, calm respondent to rise above them. I coulda never done it.

Authors: Thanks for your book and your service in bringing down Kerry's campaign simply by letting the truth be told in one wonderfully documented book.

Once I catch up on the sleep I lost while staying up to read this book and the horrific struggle all SwiftVets went through, I'm gonna be greatly satisfied that justice can be had, after all. Just not from those the institutions you'd expect to be just.

I am in awe of those who took the risks to tell this truth. You have restored my belief in honor.

I await the full disclosure of John Kerry's records and original discharge. Amazing how the press can uncover classified information and national secrets as well as the personnel records of Linda Tripp. But not show us the money shots on Kerry.

That vacuum of "media truth" speaks volumes to me.

Most of the reviews here are very convincing. It is why I bought the book. I will add my recommendation to buy the book and read it. I have respect for the service the veterans provided to our country. The manner in which the media and various organizations within the Democrats party apparatus treated them is horrific. The level of deceit and personal attacks they faced and are still facing is covered in detail in the book. The media has hidden the truth from the public and continues today by using the term "swiftboating" to mean the exact opposite of what these brave people did on our behalf. This book will provide you the information to make your own decision on whether John Kerry was fit or unfit for duty.
