About the Author

Daniel A. Sjursen recently retired from the US Army where he had reached the rank of major and served as a history instructor at West Point, his alma mater. He served tours with reconnaissance units in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the author of Ghost Riders of Baghdad- Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge and Patriotic Dissent- America in the Age of Endless War. Follow him on Twitter at @SkepticalVet and listen to his podcast "Fortress on a Hill," co-hosted with fellow vet Chris "Henri" Henrikson.


"An engaging warts-and-all history of the U.S. meant to better educate those who fight for it...Strongly written and thought-provoking-a must read for nonhistorians seeking a firm grasp of accurate American history." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Sjursen's analysis compels the reader to think critically, in order to move beyond the half-truths that keep us from collectively solving America's most persistent and damaging inequities." -Seattle Book Review

"Eye-opening and thought-provoking . . . for anyone wanting a solid and more complete understanding of our shared history, this is a great book to have." -Lily Bartels of The Open Door Bookstore on Northeast Public Radio
