Never Surrender By LTG. William G. Boykin

General Boykin came to public attention in the most unfair way; he was the target of a media hit piece. The General is a practicing Evangelical Christian. His faith and military service make him a desired target for the media. NBC news and the LA Times ran with stories that lacked honesty and fairness. He was trashed by the political classes and even by the President of the United States. His only defender was Donald Rumsfield, showing yet again that the Secretary of Defense is a man of his own.
The book is a recounting of the role that faith played in a soldier’s life and how because of that faith he became the target of the media. The book is a breezy read that will become popular with church groups and other Christian organizations. The book is also a reminder of how the press manipulates and distorts to shape their own agendas.
