Is General Patterson's book available via interlibrary loan to this former Guard down in the States?

Amazon lists the following identifiers (ISBN numbers) under his book:

The following ISBNs are associated with this title:
ISBN - 10:1897453264
ISBN - 13:9781897453261

I'd guess that all your local library needs is the author's name, the book title and these numbers to try and find a copy to borrow from another institution.

Best of luck.
