Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author and conservative U.S. Senator Tom Cotton exposes the progressive left’s decades-long plot to sabotage American power, culminating in a behind-the-scenes look at the dangerous failures of Presidents Barack Obama and Joe Biden—and explains what we must do to recover America’s strength.

If it seems to you that Barack Obama and Joe Biden have weakened America and emboldened our enemies, you’re not alone. But Senator Cotton explains that their failures aren’t just incompetence or bad luck—it’s decline by design.

Only the Strong reveals the untold inside story of how progressive ideologues and Democratic politicians abandoned the American tradition of strength, pride, and honor. From the beginning, early progressives like Woodrow Wilson repudiated our Founding in favor of globalist fantasies abroad and big government at home. By Vietnam, leftists had begun to blame America first for the world’s problems—just as Barack Obama did for eight years as he apologized and sought to atone for America’s supposed sins. Along the way, Democrats have sold out America’s sovereignty and hollowed out our military to restrain American power. Even when Democrats have acted tough, it usually ends in disaster, from John Kennedy’s debacle at the Bay of Pigs to Bill Clinton’s fiasco in Mogadishu to Joe Biden’s humiliating retreat from Afghanistan.

While offering a timely warning of the dangers ahead and new stories from Senator Cotton’s service in the Senate and the Army, Only the Strong also provides a formidable and urgent roadmap to restore American strength before it’s too late. Because only the strong can survive in a dangerous world and only the strong can preserve their freedom.

Need more of the Good Guys

Need more like Mr Cotton in the Senate. This book shows the fundamental breakdown of our society and the military, with spot on precision. Please continue your fight against the disaster on the border and Chinese threats approaching at every Democratic door left open , figuratively and literally. Thank You for all you do.

Wake Up America!

There is so much that we regular Americans don’t know about China. Reading this book is a required first step for those who want to know.

the senator is a sell out based on his vote

cotton is a sell out based on his latest Omi bus vote. the content of this book is solid and he is right liberals are trying to destroy America from within. However what he writes about is not consistent with his vote to support the latest 1.7 trillion dollar bill pushed by the Dems.

Evan's Review

I really like this book and I strongly recommend it. In this book Senator Cotton writes alot about how America is strong Country. He quotes President Reagan. Being combat veteran he understands how our military needs to be strongest in the world during peace time so we are prepared.

Just Me: A little too detailed in places.

I learned and was reminded on times in our Amerian history. There were places where I was a little overwhelmed with the details, though I'm not saying that the details didn't need to be there. Further, I do appreciate that my Senator knows those details. Thank you, Tom Cotton.
