Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window by Dan Oja
Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window is the true story of one family, six brothers, and a world at war. It is the story of the Koski brothers, the men they served with, and the millions of Allied soldiers who sacrificed so much to win that war. Ordinary Heroes weaves the story of the six Koski brothers into a gripping wartime saga. This is not a dry, historical account of events. It is a detailed, accurate depiction of the real-life experiences of these ordinary soldiers, these ordinary heroes, drawn against the backdrop of those tumultuous times.
Dan Oja is the coauthor of over 150 college computer textbooks including the best-selling New Perspectives on Computer Concepts. Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window is his first historical nonfiction book.
