By Jerry Boykin
In 1978, Jerry Boykin joined what would become the world's premier Special Operations unit, Delta Force. The only promise: "A medal and a body bag." What followed was a .50 caliber round in the chest and a life spent with America's elite forces bringing down warlords and war criminals, despots and dictators. In Columbia, his task force hunted the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar. In Panama, he helped capture the brutal dictator Manuel Noriega, liberating a nation. From Vietnam to Iran to Mogadishu, Lt. General Jerry Boykin's life reads like an action-adventure novel.
Boykin's powerful story will keep you riveted as he reveals how his military duty worked in tandem with his faith to bring him through the bloody storms of foreign battle ÌÎ_Ì´å and through the political firestorm that ambushed him in his own country.
"A powerful and moving chronicle of courage, commitment, and devotion by an audacious soldier and gifted leader. This thrilling account of how he "fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith" in the midst of dangerous and difficult circumstances is inspiring. You won't want to put it down." - Oliver North, Lt. Col. USMC (Ret.), New York Times bestselling author of "Mission Compromised," "Jericho Sanction," "The Assassin" and the FOX "News War Stories" series.
"'NEVER SURRENDER' takes the reader through the experiences of one of America's greatest living soldiers, touching firmly on recent history and much of the drama surrounding it. More importantly, the book shows how one of the strongest of the strong isn't so strong he can't still call on his faith and on God to guide him in difficult times." - Bill Cowan, retired Marine and Fox News Channel contributor
"'NEVER SURRENDER' is a saga of battles won and lost, of political intrigue and battlefield valor, of personal tragedy and the God who fashions greatness in the crucible of hardship. This is Jerry Boykin's story, a tale that offers us sterling character to make our own." - Stephen Mansfield, New York Times bestselling author of "The Faith of the American Soldier"
