Patriotic Pick for July 2022

Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History

by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger

July 9, 2022

Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Kathy Cannon Wiechman, inaugural winner of the Grateful American Book Prize for Like a River: A Civil War Novel:

Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger. Retired admiral James Stavridis, former supreme allied commander of NATO, calls this work “a riveting book of history that reads as though it were ripped from today’s headlines, and a must read for anyone seeking an understanding of the roots of U.S. foreign policy.”
