    Incredible Stories of Bravery

    This book relates extraordinary stories of bravery and sacrifice in the most incredible situations by our most honored military heroes. Who would know that men could accomplish such feats against such overwhelming odds. The wonderful photographs and powerful essays by Tom Brokaw and Senator McCain clearly bring home the respect and honor these men have earned. There are a couple of special highlights that some readers might miss. One are the inspiring quotes inside the front and back covers from the men featured in the book such as World War II Veteran John Hawk who said, 'I came when I was called and I did the best I could.' Second is the final 117th portrait and story on the Tomb of the Unknowns where the author tells of the 'soldiers' interred there, 'known but to God,' who have also been bestowed with the Medal of Honor. They symbolize the service of all those who came back from foreign battlefields where they served their country and those who died there. One cannot hope to read this book and feel anything other than profound pride in the raw courage and selfless service demonstrated by these men and all who serve in uniform today. It certainly brings home how important it is to perpetuate the legacy of what the Medal of Honor represents and how 'ordinary men and women can challenge fate and literally change the course of history, if they have the courage to try,' another quote in the book by Medal of Honor recipient Paul Bucha. This book is 'must' reading because it embodies the values of courage, sacrifice, and patriotism, and the dignity and peace of the men who have received our nation's highest military honor.

    After attending a Medal of Honor Gala in New York, I picked up a copy of this book. It's a large, heavy, thick book that will leave the reader yearning for more. If a sixth star was availabale, I'd give it a six. In short, this book gives the reader a glimpse into what makes America great, the people. Featured are ordinary people who performed extraordiany feats when it mattered most. Order extra books, you'll want to use them as giftrs.

    Don't Skip this one!!

    This book puts a face on a group of REAL American heros. This book allows one to hear the stories of actual people who did anything they could to help others and details their 'sacrifices at any price'. This should be required reading for any American. It proves that our freedom does come at a cost. Wonderful Book!!

    Should be required reading for all high school students

    This book brings to light and puts a face on a group of REAL American heros. The incredible stories it tells puts real meaning to the phrase 'Freedon is not free'. Anyone who reads this book should walk away a little more sober and appreciative of the freedoms afforded them in the United States.
