Michael T. Flynn, a military veteran and the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has signed a deal with St. Martin’s Press. He will collaborate with Michael Ledeen, a historian, to write a book entitled The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.
St. Martin’s Press editor in chief George Witte negotiated the deal with Writer’s Representatives literary agent Glen Hartley. The release date has been set for July 2016.
Flynn had this statement in the press release: “I am writing this book for two reasons: first, to show that the war is being waged against us by enemies this administration has forbidden us to describe: radical Islamists. Second, to lay out a winning strategy that is not passively relying on technology and drone attacks to do the job. We could lose this war; in fact, right now we are losing. The Field of Fight will give me view on how to win.”
