Patrick O'Donnell Best Selling Author and Historian EP 18 Sea 2

Miller's Military Moments

What an incredible opportunity it was to have Patrick on the show today.  He is a historian, public speaker, and bestselling author of 12 books and scores of films and documentaries spanning the American Revolution to the Battle of Fallujah. He is a leading expert on America’s elite and special operations units. His latest book, The Indispensables: The Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delawareis a must read for every American. This book details how special our revolutionary patriots were, where our ideas of freedom and liberty originated, and the real sacrifices they made to win. There is so much more to the revolutionary war than throwing tea overboard and Washington crossing the Delaware River and winning! So So much more. We were able to discuss many parts of his new book plus one of his others "We Were One" about the Marines who fought in Fallujah, Iraq. The common theme he agrees with is the "will" of the American warrior has always been different than everyone else's.

With The American Experiment on the Precipice, It's Good To Know Our Shared Origin Story: A Conversation with Historian Patrick O'Donnell

Talk Cocktail

As divided as we are today about the state of our current politics and the debate about facts, it seems that at least we should be able to agree about our shared history. And yet even that is debated today. When did America begin? Who gets credit, and how did it shape us?  Patrick O’Donnell is one of our most distinguished military historians and he always trying to answer these questions.  He is author of twelve books, including The Unknowns and Washington’s Immortals. and served as a combat historian in a Marine rifle platoon during the Battle of Fallujah and has dedicated himself to understanding the truth about our history, particularly our military history, and it’s importance in helping us better understand who we really are and where we come from. His latest is The Indispensables: The Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delaware  My conversation with Patrick O'Donnell:
