James Webb writes like Scots-Irish warriors take to the
battlefield--with power and purpose, with courage and clarity. Born
Fighting delights and inspires; in reading it I learned more about
my nation, my family, and myself. James Webb is a Warrior-Poet, and
he has written an extraordinary book.

BORN FIGHTING is a bombshell – or else the most brilliant battle
flare ever launched by a book.
James Webb reveals the all-but-invisible ethnic group that
has created the core beliefs of democracy American style: our rights
come from God not the Government; all of us are born equal and ‘born
aristocrats’ don’t exist; and tread on either of those two truths,
and we’ll fight you down to the last unbroken hyoid bone.
The Scots-Irish (for such is their name) have fought all our
wars for us, including Vietnam.
James Webb was there, and he can count.
He has written not only an engrossing
story but also an important work of sociological history in
the tradition of the great James Graham Leyburn.
