Here Rests In Honored Gloryby Andrew J. Dekever
Life Stories Of Our Country's Medal Of Honor Recipients. Chronicling the lives of ten recipients of the Medal of Honor, our nation's highest award for combat heroism, Andrew DeKever, a veteran of the Iraq War, breaks ranks from similar books by focusing more on describing the men behind the uniform rather than on the few minutes of valor that immortalized them in the pages of American military history. As a result, Here Rests in Honored Glory reminds its readers that true heroes are ordinary men and women who, under the most horrific of circumstances, are able to dig deep and find the raw courage necessary to be brave "above and beyond the call of duty" towards protecting other people and serving a cause greater than themselves. See book preview for list of contents. With Preface by Michael J. Durant, Chief Warrant Officer 4 (ret.), U.S. Army, author of "In The Company Of Heroes" and "The Night Stalkers." 27 photos, 8 illustrations, bibliography, footnotes.

'Here Rests in Honored Glory' is a well researched book that will be an excellant addition to the library of anyone with an interest in the deeds of courage performed by our military, especially of those who earned our nation's highest award, the Medal of Honor. This work goes beyond the stories of thier military actions, and tells thier private stories in great detail as well. You will get information about the men chronicled in this book that you will not find any other publication. I can't wait for his next book.
