Description
The press called him a "real-life James Bond." Fidel Castro called him "the most dangerous CIA agent." Yet history remembers Frank Sturgis as one of the Watergate burglars, apprehended during what was probably his least perilous mission. Under more than 30 aliases and code names, Sturgis had trained guerilla armies in 12 countries on three continents, and spearheaded assassination plots to overthrow foreign governments in Cuba, Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. Warrior follows the shocking, often unbelievable adventures of Sturgis, brought to life by his nephew Jim Hunt—a professor of law and psychiatry who lived with Sturgis—and Hunt's longtime friend Bob Risch, also a lawyer. The book includes photos of Sturgis and his compatriots from personal archives.

"There actually are James-Bond-bigger-than-life-characters in the real world. Not many, but Frank Sturgis fits the bill perfectly. WWII Marine hero, CIA operative, Watergate burglar, arms runner to Angola, this guy could and did do everything.... Warrior reads like a top shelf action-adventure novel, only this story is the real deal."—David Hagberg
