The Road to Unafraid

by Captain Jeff Struecker, with Dean Merrill
Thomas Nelson, paperback published 2009 (hardcover 2006), 232 pages

This memoir, whose author won a competition declaring him the army’s top Ranger, shows more about one of the true stories behind the rescue of  the survivors of the famous - and disastrous – mission in Somalia that was portrayed in the movie Black Hawk Down. Struecker tells how his faith enabled him to cope with his fear of death, combat in Somalia, and the hazards of being a chaplain under fire in Afghanistan. A great book about Christian manhood for guys, teen and up, who don't want to read sermons about Christian manhood. My fifteen-year-old devoured it.
