From the PublisherWWII History Magazine, May 2007
"Few authors love the 82nd Airborne Division more than Phil Nordyke. His earlier books, All American, All the Way and The All Americans in World War II, chronicle the division's exploits in the Mediterranean and European theaters; Four Stars of Valor is his way of honoring one of the division's stellar regiments--the 505th...Basing his book on extensive archival research as well as the memoirs and interviews of over 300 veterans, Nordyke takes the reader from the 505th's prewar days, through basic and airborne training, and into the unfriendly skies above enemy-held territory, conveying with remarkable immediacy and power what it was like to be an American airborne trooper engaged in heavy combat during World War II...Four Stars of Valor is essential reading for anyone moved by the American fighting man's courage, discipline, and devotion to duty."
