Frank Skinner introduces you to the hidden world of the brave, unsung heroes who dedicate their lives to protecting millions of Americans against the ongoing threat of terrorism. From the humid jungles of Vietnam to the streets and alleyways of North African "hot spots" such as Beirut, Cairo and Libya, Skinner gives you the true story of how the current war on terror began.
What he shares are some of the most dangerous, intense situations and military training scenarios that he's faced, all the while helping to raise his family and cope with his son's life-threatening medical problems. More than just a book on military tactics and counter-terrorism, this is a book on survival and the human spirit.
Praised by authors Richard Marcinko and Dr. Margaret Nydell, Skinner's book takes an exciting look into the very evolution of military history through the eyes of a man who has been in the very heart of it. Complete with photographs to help reference his tactical training as well as his travels around the world, Cook, Baker, Candlestick Maker is a fascinating exploration into one of the most vital yet unknown areas in today's military.
