Overview
As seen on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly.
Carl Higbie was a member of the the Navy Seal team that captured the Butcher of Fallujah, only to later be accused of prisoner abuse.
Carl Higbie was on the Navy Seal assault team that captured the most wanted man in the Middle East-the Butcher of Fallujah, Ahmed Hashim Abd Al-Isawi. But instead of receiving the hero's welcome the SEALs deserved, they were charged with prisoner abuse after Al-Isawi alleged they'd beaten him up. Carl Higbie was a witness for their defense at the courts martial. When he went public with his account of what happened, the Navy fought him tooth and nail. But Higbie fought back-and he won.

In this brief chronicle, Higbie (Battle on the Home Front: A Navy SEAL's Mission to save the American) describes his nine-year career as a Navy SEAL, including his two tours in combat and his forced dismissal from the service. This book is less overtly political than his previous work, which had caused trouble with the military brass. There is good information on military service here, but much is missing or left unsaid. The book's best parts are Higbie's descriptions of his SEAL team training and the story of his somewhat wild youth before his time in the Navy (otherwise there is little on his personal life). The descriptions of SEAL combat in Iraq are short but well done. The last quarter relates the tribulations Higbie endured at the hands of the Navy and his SEAL chain of command—including being discharged—after publishing the controversial book Battle on the Home Front. Their response was arguably heavy-handed, and Higbie demonstrates the power of the military bureaucracy and how it can be used to intimidate and suppress bad news and dissent in the ranks. The book is somewhat disjointed, but readers interested in special operations and SEAL history will find it informative. (May)
