Each of the men depicted here—Joseph “Chip” Wiley, Jimmy DeValery, Harry Conners, and Theodore Rodgers—had lives, families, and careers they left behind. But they were not the only ones to report for duty: their families also had to fight daily battles through hardships, through defeats, through loss.

About the Author

Jon Stafford was born in Michigan, the third of four children, and grew up outside of Chicago, attending college close to home. He ventured south to Alabama for his master's degree in Civil War history and worked toward his PhD at the University of South Carolina. Jon now lives in Columbia, South Carolina, and, after retiring from a thirty-year career teaching history to high schoolers, now spends his time as a residential building contractor, rehabbing houses. When not writing, Jon can be found spending time with his two daughters and grandchild, reading history tomes, and watching classic movies. Nostalgic for a time now gone, Jon is always rooting for the good guy: The good guys always win!

Admittedly, I'm only halfway through the book, but so far it has been an excellent read! Full of stories of touching humanity, which doesn't surprise me in the least... I rushed to buy this as soon as I found out about it, as I had the privilege of having the author as my high school history teacher, and couldn't wait to read what he had written. Reminds me of how eager all his students were to get to his class and hear his stories- one of the reasons Mr. Stafford was a favorite and much beloved teacher! I must thank him again for sharing his talents and knowledge with the world!! H Kilpatrick
