About Dan E. Ireland
My name is Dan E. Ireland and I was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota. I spent more than 30 years teaching in the St. Paul public schools. I have coached for football and hockey as well. Like most English teachers, I felt I had at least one book in me.
The Ultimate Arena is the first book of what I intend to be many more. I hope that this book reintroduces the unforgivable injustices suffered by a beautiful American family and a reminder of how important the truth has to be in our lives.
I am a creative writer and write books and novels. I have been into this profession for the last five years. My books are historical fiction. This book The Ultimate Arena, The Sacrifice of an American Gladiator is based on Pat Tillman and his story and how he was killed overseas. I feel the story should reach every one of us and should never be forgotten.
A True Story
If you are an athlete, football fan, or someone who is intrigued by this genre, read the book and learn the truth. This is a true story of a brave young man who believed in putting his life on the line to defend his country.
