- Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund’s book, “Courage Under Fire: Under Siege and Outnumbered 58 to 1 on January 6,” will be released on Jan. 3, 2023, almost exactly two years after the Jan. 6 riot.
- Sund left the Capitol police force shortly after the riot.
- The month after the riot, he testified to Congress that he hadn’t received adequate intelligence information to keep his forces from being understaffed.
“It’s time to break my silence and reveal everything that I know happened,” Sund said in a statement released by Blackstone Publishing.He has told Congress that he doesn’t believe his officers failed, saying, “Greatly outnumbered and against tremendous odds, they kept the members safe.”
- According to Blackstone Sund’s book will give a “detailed and harrowing minute-by-minute account of the attack” and follow his “extraordinary journey from his command post on January 6 to his explosive behind-closed-doors testimony before the January 6 committee.”
