Editorial Reviews

Review

“A gripping, pulse-pounding tale that’ll have you turning the pages faster than you can say, ‘Remember the Alamo!’ Nobody does history like Brian Kilmeade!”
—Brad Thor, author of Backlash and Use of Force
 
“In this thrilling book, Brian Kilmeade reimagines Houston’s bold life as a frontiersman, war fighter, and statesman for a new age.”
—Marcus Luttrell, retired Navy SEAL and author of Lone Survivor
 
“Every page sparkles with historical insights, fine writing, and fast-paced, Western-style action. A must-read!”
—Douglas Brinkley, author of American Moonshot
 
“We Texans know how special our history is. Now, thanks to Brian Kilmeade’s new book, the rest of the country can also celebrate the way defeat gave way to glory.”
—Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks
 
“This story shouldn’t be possible—and yet it is, filled with unlikely heroes forced to face staggering odds. Like our country itself, Sam Houston & the Alamo Avengers staggers, inspires, and reminds us of the power of real leaders.”
—Brad Meltzer, author of The First Conspiracy
 
“This magnificent jewel of a book is Brian Kilmeade’s finest yet. The narrative is by turns riveting, poignant, and irresistible, while the scholarship is impeccable. What an achievement!”
—Jay Winik, author of April 1865 and 1944
 
“Kilmeade tells a tale of early Texas history that echoes vibrantly today in the courage, honor, and commitment of the U.S. military serving around the world. A masterpiece!”
—Admiral James Stavridis, 16th Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and author of Sailing True North
 
“A fast-paced romp through the Texas Revolution that feels more like a novel than nonfiction. Kilmeade presents the leaders of the Lone Star State as the flawed and fearless heroes they truly were, and their David and Goliath story that changed American history is riveting reading.”
—Stephen L. Moore, author of Eighteen Minutes and Texas Rising
 
"As a historian who has spent years working with the public, I believe the stories we tell should be accessible, interesting, and accurate. Brian Kilmeade hits all three points in Sam Houston & the Alamo Avengers." 
—Dr. Richard Bruce Winders, author of Mr. Polk's ArmyCrisis in the Southwest, and Sacrificed at the Alamo

Not many broadcasters can say they are on the air for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, but that is exactly what Brian Kilmeade has been doing since 2006. After joining Fox News in 1997, he was soon named co-host of Fox &amp; Friends, where he still thrives alongside the extraordinarily talented Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt. Together they have powered their way to the top spot in morning cable TV. After Fox &amp; Friends from 6 - 9AM ET. Kilmeade has the privilege of hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, “The Brian Kilmeade Show” on Fox News Talk from 9-12 noon.

Every weekday morning, Kilmeade provides viewers with the latest on the breaking news, sports, politics and entertainment. During his tenure at Fox News, he has developed the ability to interview and provide insight into newsmakers, politicians, celebrities and athletes. On any given day you might see him with former President George W. Bush, Michael Jordan, Simon Cowell, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or supermodel Miranda Kerr. His radio show features many Fox personalities, big names guests and somehow still manages to cover the news of the day with seriousness and a smile.

Brian has written 5 books, 4 of which were New York Times best sellers: ”The Games Do Count”, “It’s How You Play the Game” and more recently, “George Washington’s Secret Six” and “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates” co- written with Don Yaeger. His fifth book “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans” is due out in the fall of 2017, again teaming up with Yaeger with the hope of mirroring their previous success.

Prior to joining FNC, Kilmeade was an anchor/reporter on NEWSPORT TV. While in Los Angeles, he was an anchor on KHSC-TV and a host on all sports radio’s XTRA AM690. His duties on XTRA included co-hosting The Jim Brown Show where he struck up a friendship that still flourishes today. One his first jobs was as a correspondent on Channel One, a daily national high school television news program. Along way, he also managed to fit in 10 years of stand-up comedy experience.

He currently resides in Massapequa, NY where he grew up with his wife and 3 kids. When he is not working, you can often catch him on the soccer field watching or coaching. He graduated from LIU-CW Post with a BA in Communications in 1986 where he also played soccer.

5.0 out of 5 stars History Re-Kindled by Kilmeade! Its Battlecry: "Remember the Alamo!"
By Book Glutton on November 5, 2019
This was a must buy! I’ve heard Kilmeade speak about this during several interviews. If you’ve heard him speak, he makes history come alive. He knows his subject. He’s confident in what he knows. He’s excited about telling his story. You can see it in the picture. Because of this I bought the Kindle version with Audible audio. He’s the narrator! I set the listening speed to 1.25X and it makes his voice sound even more exciting! Growing up with stories of Davy Crockett et al., I have had these rekindled in maybe a much more interesting way and format. It helps us to appreciate the greatness of our country and the heroism and sacrifice that obtained for us, and passed down to us, this “home of the free and the land of the brave.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Liberty's bell rings loud.
By R. Rosalez on November 8, 2019
This book is a high quality read that lovers of history would treasure for a long time. As a Texan, I would highly recommend others to buy and read this book which will reinforce libertarian ideals of freedom and liberty.
