American Veterans: Their Stories of Service and Valor by Lt. Col. James Lawrence USAF (Ret.)
"Jim Lawrence, a former compatriot in a unit at the tip of the spear, has
come up spades with his latest book, American Veterans: Their Stories of
Service and Valor. I will always pick up a collection of personal
experiences, such as American Veterans, when I want to get a sense of
what was actually happening in the individual “wars” and “battles.”
Every combatant has a story, and those stories are often more
informative about the nature of war than the broader historical
accounts. To each his own, but I prefer books like those written by Lt.
Col. Jim Lawrence, a true hero in his own right. This one is a winner."
"For anyone interested in military history, this book is your literary
gold mine. In time of war there are so many untold stories that are
worthy of being handed down for our current and future generations to
read and understand, but, sadly, they are never recorded and become lost
forever. This collection of amazing stories within American Veterans:
Their Stories of Service and Valor takes the reader on a journey through
eight major conflicts and concludes with powerful stories of our U.S.
prisoners of war. Once you start reading this fascinating collection of
war stories, you will only crave more. Retired USAF Lieutenant Colonel
James “Jim” Lawrence has produced yet another winner, so sit back and
enjoy these historical treats as I did."
