9781597971195: Courage and Fear: A Primer

“I have only two men out of my company and twenty out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold.” First Lt. Clifton B. Cates’s report on July 19, 1918, reminds us that controlling one’s fear is key to success on the battlefield. Cates—a future commandant of the Marine Corps—held, but if his fear had bested him, he might not have been able to think clearly or lead his men successfully, possibly sacrificing his men’s lives and the mission.

Medal of Honor recipient and retired Marine colonel Wesley L. Fox writes about his fears in difficult operational and training situations, their effect on him, and he how he handled particular fears. While he focuses primarily on military experiences, Fox’s methods of handling the thoughts, actions, and reactions to fear apply to civilian circumstances as well. Fear can bombard us in our daily routine, sometimes in unexpected ways. The more we know about ourselves and how fear affects us, the better able we are to control it and to produce positive results. “If fear is not handled properly and promptly,” Fox writes, “it can and will override common sense, good judgment, and the positive decision-making process.”

About the Author :

Col. Wesley L. Fox, USMC (Ret.), retired from the Marine Corps in 1993 after forty-three years of distinguished service. In addition to the Medal of Honor, he received two awards of the Legion of Merit, a Bronze Star with Combat V, four awards of the Purple Heart, and numerous commendations. From 1993 until his retirement in 2001, Fox served as deputy commandant of cadets at Virginia Tech. He lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Review :

"‘For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty...’ That’s how the Medal of Honor citation for Wesley L. Fox begins. Thankfully, the story doesn’t end there. In the pages of this primer, a legendary hero acknowledges the fears he has felt and how he overcame them. His inspiring discourse on courage—and why this quality is so crucial to character—makes this book a ‘must read’ for every American."—Oliver L. North, LtCol USMC (Ret.), Host, War Stories, FOX News Channel (Oliver L. North)

"There are few people who qualify as ‘experts’ on courage and fear. Colonel Wes Fox, the ultimate Marine's Marine, is one of them. He knows of what he writes and he writes beautifully and bluntly about it. Nobody has ever done it better—or likely ever will."—Jim Lehrer, Executive Editor and Anchor, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer and Author of The Phony Marine: A Novel (Jim Lehrer)

“This book is a must-read for soldiers currently serving in today’s military.”—Military Heritage (Military Heritage 2008-04-24)

"More than a mere primer, this may be a lesson for life, and not only for members of the military profession."—Roanoke Times (Roanoke Times 2008-05-08)
