9780304358625: Heroes of the Hour: Brief Moments of Military Glory

13 heroes--forgotten by time. These men changed the course
of history with their valor and larger-than-life actions, yet few
today remember their triumphs. Some were honorable, others not,
but their contemporaries regarded them with pride. Most were
professional soldiers, like Lieutenant Walter Hamilton, who
fought the Kabul mob to the death and took 600 of the enemy with
him. Another, Major General Lew Wallace, though primarily a
lawyer and politician, commanded a division at the Battle of
Shiloh; today most people know him as the author of Ben Hur.
Written by a best-selling author of military history, every true
story has as much excitement and wartime thrills as any work of
fiction.
