This is the true story of a real American war hero. Seperated from his platoon, Sgt. Alvin York single-handedly killed 25 enemy soldiers, and then proceeded to capture the rest of the enemy's platoon. When he reunited with his own guys, he had 125 P.O.W's with him.

I found this book to be very interesting and well written. The author told the story of the life of a great hero from World War 1 and it was not only about the war but Sgt. Alvin York's dedication his to his God and then all men. It is the entire story of Alvin York from before the war, during the war and after the war. The book itself is worth a reread and I recommend this it to everyone interested in that time period.
