I was actually surprised at how much I liked this book. Twenty-One Steps To Courage was much more than I expected. It was a book filled with lots or emotion and courage. Sarah Bates does an incredible job of research which makes this book a great read. I would recommend anyone to read it. There is some language in it but it kind of goes with the territory. Expect a fast paced and fascinating read as you journey along with Rod through basic training and then into infantry training and then Ranger school and ultimately to the 'Old Guard'. 21 Steps to Courage is filled with love of country/family. You'll find strength and courage portrayed but very strong characters. Whether your a fan of military books or not you need to give this one a chance. I received a complimentary copy.

In Twenty-One Steps Of Courage, author Sarah Bates weaves a riveting military story that follows Rod Strong's journey as he follows in his late father's footsteps and enlists in the Army with the intention to achieve his father's goal to become a Sentinel of the Old Guard. The author's thorough, realistic and authentic research into the Army process from enlistment to the elite Old Guard Regiment that guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, provides the reader with a captivating story about one man's vow to uphold his deceased father's legacy by achieving the commission as a Sentinel of the Old Guard. Rod is a driven young man determined to achieve his lofty military goals. From enlisting on his eighteenth birthday through basic, Infantry, Ranger and Old Guard training, the reader can't help but cheer on Rod as he embarks on a personal journey full of courage, determination, pride, and a sense of duty. Twenty-One Steps Of Courage is a well-written story that flows smoothly from the beginning; it is realistic and full of riveting suspenseful twists and turns that easily draws the reader into Rod's admirable and courageous military journey. I would highly recommend this book for those readers interested in the military literature genre.

I won this on a giveaway and was so excited to read it. I may have bought it if I didn't skim through it well but I am glad I didn't have to. The book was informative and well-researched. The story was quite interesting. However,the story did not totally led from one situation to another all the time. It jumped a little too much. Although I know vulgar language seems to be approved in society, it tends to ruin a story for many of us. It is ironic that so much foul language is used in the military because in the military bi-laws, profanity is not accepted. My husband laid a complaint several years ago and all his co-workers had to abide it around him or get written up. It would have taken a few more words but Sarah could have eliminated the profanity and the readers would still have caught the main drift of cussing.
