Never Surrender: A Book Review and Giveaway




About The Book:


General Jerry Boykin is one of the original members of the Delta Force and has spent the majority of his career in Special Forces. His work in this area of the military placed him in many battles--some of them legendary. He was commander of the Delta Force team portrayed in the movie Black Hawk Down. 

These and other dramatic experiences make Boykin's life story read like the riveting fiction of Tom Clancy. He shares how his foundation of faith--while challenged and even broken--was restored and became the lifeblood that brought him through unimaginable circumstances to a rich and inspiring life.

In the end, the general realizes his life would have gone very differently, even tragically, without his faith. 








About The Author:


Lieutenant General William "Jerry" Boykin served in a variety of posts during his 36-year career in the Army, most of them involving Delta Force and Special Forces. He is an original member of the Army's Delta Force. His last post was as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Pentagon, overseeing the gathering and exploitation of intelligence during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.


My Review:


An amazing account of Ltg (Ret. William G. Boykin's 36 year U.S. Military career, particularly his time in Delta Force. This book has many tales and I am sure William Boykin could tell you even more. Even with the superior writing style and the amazing situations that Boykin found himself in, the thing that stood out to me was his amazing faith in God, and how it brought him through some very difficult moments. 


What an wonderful example of what happens when one fights for their faith and freedom. Thank you to the author, as well as all the others who have served in military companies around the world!


This is a book that I highly recommend and give a huge thumbs up!
