Overview

Stories in Uniform is a chronological retrospective of the best military pieces Reader's Digest has run; pieces that will make you weep, make your heart sing, inspire you, enrage you, and make you laugh. Beginning in World War I and continuing though to the war in Iraq, readers will follow soldiers into the trenches, peer in on emergency surgery taking place in the depths of the ocean, watch heroes carry the bodies of fallen brethren, trail Eisenhower for the three days leading up to D-Day, and be inspired as men and women rise above and beyond normal human limits to preserve our rights and save their friends.
Stories include:
• A moving memorial to D-Day
• A tribute to one of the first African-Americans to serve as a Naval Officer
• A pilot rescued after his F-16 is shot down
• A soldier returns to the front after losing his foot in action
• An American soldier who takes a big risk to save a dying Afghan girl
This book gives a complete perspective on the hell that is war, the love that grows from camaraderie, the pride from accomplishing the impossible, the humor that springs from the military bureaucracy, and more.

STORIES IN UNIFORM: A LOOK AT THE HEROICS, SACRIFICES,AND TRIUMPHS OF OUR SOLDIERS created by Reader's Digest Association is an intriguing History/Military/United States/Non-Fiction. A collection of stories of bravery,courage,sacrifice,heroes,and the Military of the United States. It is filled with emotion and strength of our Soldiers. A must read! If you only read one non-fiction book this year, it should be this title,especially, if you enjoy reading the history of the military,its heroes,its legacy and the courage of the American people. Be warned you will need tissues. Moving stories of the military.This book is about someone's loved one,written by someone's loved ones and read by someone's loved one.
