Overview

Heroes Never Die is an informative, provocative, and entertaining compendium of fifty never-before-collected essays on World War II by former soldier and military historian Martin Blumenson. Commanders profiled include Eisenhower, Bradley, Rommel, and Montgomery, as well as the best of Blumenson's extensive writings on General George S. Patton. Included are four never before published essays on Patton, Hitler, von Rundstedt, and Audie Murphy. Skillful and insightful re-examinations of key battles and the soldiers who fought them cover the allied disaster at Kasserine Pass, America's first military encounter with the Germans; the American invasion of Southern Italy; the bloody landing at Salerno; the lethal battle of the Hedgerows; the grisly stalemate of Anzio; the liberation of Paris; and much more. From the biting desert sands of Northern Africa to the bloody beaches of Europe, Blumenson takes the reader to the frontlines of many of the twentieth century's greatest battles and into the personalities of legendary commanders. He does so with a soldier's understanding of the dynamics of battle and with an officer's insight into the evolving tactics of war.

Editorial Reviews

Army Magazine
The book is a valuable refresher of thoughts and issues that have been facing military people for much of the last century.
— Gen. Frederick J. Kroesen
Military Heritage
Blumenson... has compiled Heroes Never Die with a thorough understanding of both the highest level of command and a foot soldier's experience of combat.
The Journal of Military History
Heroes Never Die stands as a tribute to the gifts and contributions of one of the ablest historians of World War II. The work is thorough, informative, and stimulating. Blumenson combines, perhaps better than any other, scholarly skepticism, military applicability, and accessible narrative. His latest book is highly recommended to scholars and "buffs" alike.
— Robert C. Blackstone
World War II History
This compendium of lore about the leaders, strategies, tactics, and battles is a treasure trove for WWII buffs and scholars. It is packed with fascinating insight into leadership and courage, from Kasserine Pass to Gela, from Salerno to Normandy, and from Paris to Bastogne.
