If Not Now, When?: Duty and Sacrifice in America's Time of Need

by Col. Jack Jacobs

Col. Jack Jacobs believes that our nation has avoided examining the role of citizenry in the defense of its Republic. In his stirring personal story, told in collaboration with New York Times bestselling author Doug Century, the Medal of Honor recipient will offer pointed and controversial views on the mismanagement of the Iraq war, the so-called "War on Terror" and the scandals in the Abu Ghraib prison, and meditate upon Jacobs' strongly held views of service.

Jacobs' memoir is the story of a young first-generation American, born in Brooklyn, who finds himself thrust into the heat of combat where his character is defined in ways he could never have imagined during the crucible of battle.
