The Ultimate Arena, The Sacrifice of an American Gladiator

"A novel that takes a new look at what happened to a professional football player who gave up a multi-million-dollar contract and a beautiful new wife to seek justice for the United States after 9/11."

The government’s story was of a soldier killed by enemy forces in Afghanistan while protecting his fellow troops. In fact, he was killed by his own platoon mates. The government covered up the truth and even awarded the Silver Star to his family posthumously. The lies piled up until the author concluded that the true cover-up was of his murder.

Because I didn’t ask for or receive permission from his family to write this book, it should be considered historical fiction, but anyone who has seen the outstanding documentary ‘The Tillman Story’ by Amir Bar-Lev, will know who it is about.

It’s a tragic story of an American gladiator sacrificed by his own government. It is a story that should never be forgotten.
