Where Men Win Glory is the story of Pat Tillman, a man who walked away from a multimillion-dollar NFL contract to join the Army and became an icon of post-9/11 patriotism. When he was killed in Afghanistan two years later, a legend was born. But the real Pat Tillman was much more remarkable, and considerably more complicated than the public knew. Where Men Win Glory is a stunning account of a remarkable young man’s heroic life and death, from the bestselling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, Under the Banner of Heaven, and Three Cups of Deceit.
