Ad description

This book is the story of America’s experience at war told through thirteen soldiers, from the Revolutionary War to Iraq. As a veteran himself, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and a long-time student of history, McCain brings a distinctive perspective to this subject. He tells of stories of these remarkable troops:Joseph Plumb Martin, who at 15 fought in the Revolutionary War.Charles Black, a freeborn African American sailor in the War of 1812.Sam Chamberlain, of the Mexican American War, a life that inspired Cormac McCarthy.Oliver Wendell Holmes, an aristocratic idealist disillusioned by the Civil War.Edward Baker, the Sgt. Major of the Buffalo Soldiers who fought with Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba.Littleton “Tony” Waller, court-martialed for refusing to massacre Filipino civilians.Elton Mackin, a marine who volunteered for the trenches of World War I.Guy Gabaldon, who convinced 1,500 Japanese soldiers, cave by cave, to surrender during World War II.Chester Salter, who fought uphill in North Korea to fetch the body of the man who saved his life.Leo Thorsness, a pilot who fought off five other planes to cover for men on the ground in Vietnam.Mary Rhoads, an Army reservist forever changed by an Iraqi Scud missile attack during the Persian Gulf War.Monica Lin Brown, a front-line medic in rural Afghanistan who saved several lives in an ambushed convoy.Michael Monsoor, a Navy SEAL, who smothered a grenade to save his men in Iraq.Each of these thirteen soldiers personifies an essential characteristic of combat, including: valor, savagery, terror, obedience, fog, enterprise, and love.
