Jim Proser is an award-winning author and filmmaker. His book, I'm Staying with My Boys, has remained on the Marine Corps Commandant's Professional Reading List since 2011. He lives in Sarasota, Florida.
"Proser offers a concise, fast-moving story of the battle career of
the introspective and fiery General James Mattis, one of America's
most intriguing and gifted military figures of the postwar era.
From this lively portrait, Proser's Mattis emerges as our
generation's composite of George S. Patton and Omar Bradley." --
Victor Davis Hanson, Author of The Second
"A stunningly realistic portrayal of a gutsy Marine who served heroically in combat but who is now in the combat zone of DC as Trump's most capable SECDEF. Proser gives a wonderful and vivid description of how a general is made, not born." -- Peter M. Fallon, LCDR, DC, USN (Ret.)
"I was Jim Mattis's commanding officer, and I have followed the career of the `Warrior Monk' from young Marine to a four-star general. This exceptional book, by a super author, captures exactly how solid and strong his military career has been." -- Colonel Ken Jordan, USMC (Ret.)
"General Mattis is one of the greatest leaders I've had the honor of serving under during my combat deployment to Afghanistan after 9/11. A must-read and a candid look at one of the best wartime generals of our generation." -- Brandon Webb, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Circle
