Our Woke Military Could Lose the Next War

Wokeness used to be an annoying distraction in the U.S. military. Now it is a major threat to national security.

Faster than most of us thought possible, our military has become a woke, dysfunctional bureaucracy focused not on winning wars but on identity politics, gender ideology, climate change, and other favored causes of the leftist elite.

Don’t think that China isn’t watching. Don’t think that Russia, Iran, and North Korea haven’t noticed.

But so has Amber Smith, a former U.S. Army combat helicopter pilot and Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense. In her riveting new book, Unfit to Fight, she sounds the alarm that our military and our nation are at grave risk.

In Unfit to Fight, you’ll learn:
  • Why the military should not “reflect American society,” but be a select group of lethal professionals
  • How the Pentagon rewards lowered standards for the sake of “diversity”
  • Why failure often leads to promotion—if you have the right friends
  • Why a return to combat merit, battlefield mission, and trust in leadership are essential—or we will lose our next war

Elections, as they say, have consequences, and catastrophic damage to national security is among the most important. Amber Smith’s Unfit to Fight needs to be in the hands of everyone who cares about our military and our survival as a nation.
Amber Smith is a former U.S. Army OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot and air mission commander in the 101st Airborne Division. She flew combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and later served as Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense. A highly sought-after lecturer, speaker, and commentator on military affairs, Smith is a frequent guest on radio and television, including Fox News and Newsmax, and has written for Forbes, the Washington Examiner, The Hill, The Daily Caller, The Blaze, The Federalist, TownHall.com, Aviation Weekly, and Real Clear Defense. She lives near Austin, Texas.

Praise for Unfit to Fight

“Amber Smith has written ‘the’ book on woke policies in the military and what it means to readiness. Unfit to Fight is a must-read by anyone interested in understanding what woke policies have done to our military and how to fix it. Amber has ‘been there,’ from fighting in combat to fighting the bureaucratic wars in the Pentagon. I love this book. It is a fast read, and her words come from the heart. She knows from experience what befalls a military whose leadership has forgotten its primary mission of deterrence and if it fails, to fight and win our nation's wars. I want Amber on my side as we try to restore the military to protect our nation. Well done, Amber!”  —LTG (Ret.) Keith Kellogg, U.S. Army, former National Security Advisor to Vice-President Mike Pence and chief of staff of the National Security Council.
“Amber absolutely nails it with Unfit to Fight. She exposes the terrifying truth of the downward spiral of our current military and how its loss of mission focus puts our country in grave danger. It's a must-read for anyone who cares about our nation's future and their family's safety and security.”—Buck Sexton, co-host of The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show and former CIA officer
“Absolutely fantastic. Amber knocks it out of the park with Unfit to Fight. She reveals how politicized Pentagon leadership has jeopardized our national security by prioritizing ideological agendas over winning wars. This book is a wake-up call for every American on the risks we currently face with a weak, woke military. If you are concerned about the future and value the security of our nation, read this book. Don’t miss it!”—Jesse Kelly, Host of the Jesse Kelly Show & ‘I’m Right' and author of The Anti-Communist Manifesto 
“Amber speaks to one of the most pressing issues of our time: a military in decline. What was once the fiercest fighting force in the world has been reduced by our leaders to drag queen videos, pronouns, and wokeness. The only way to solve a problem is to get to the root cause and expose the rot from within. Amber, who has bravely served our country, shines a light on what's plaguing our military in Unfit to Fight.” —Lisa Boothe, host of The Truth with Lisa Boothe
“Wokism in the military is an existential threat to the United States and a betrayal of the American ethos ‘E Pluribus Unum.’ In an increasingly dangerous world, when unselfish leadership and a strong military are needed more than ever to prevent major wars, Amber Smith is a patriot sounding the alarm before it’s too late. Unfit to Fight is a must-read for everyone who loves the military, which means accepting hard truths and the essential need for immediate course correction.”—Katie Pavlich, Fox News contributor and New York Times bestselling author
