Beyond Glory PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Beyond Glory free pdf This New York Times best-selling account of battlefield courage celebrates the larger-than-life sacrifices of those awarded the nation's highest honor for valor in combat. Exclusive interviews with these twenty-four men-firsthand accounts of battlefield sacrifice from the greatest generation to Vietnam, along with before-and-after stories-form the core of this classic work. The recipients, as portrayed here, represent a cross-section as diverse as America itself-officers and enlisted men- African Americans, Hispanics, and Caucasians- men who went on to become famous (Daniel Inouye, James Stockdale, Bob Kerrey) and others who returned proudly to small towns. Beyond Glory, in the voices of these heroes, is a testament to the courage of the American nation.
