Sheepdogs - Meet Our Nation's Warriors
A Children's and Educator's Book
The debut children's book by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Stephanie Rogish. Illustrated by Joey Karwal.

"If you have no capacity for violence, then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed."

On Combat, by Lt. Col Dave Grossman (with Loren Christensen) was released on 2 September 2004. You can order your copy now at either of the following locations.
