From the Inside Flap:

"I dare you to read this book without puddling up with admiration for the courage displayed by our soldiers and an appreciation of Chicken Soup's philosophy that one person can make a difference to those whose lives he touches, even in the terrible toils of combat."

—Walter Cronkite, special news correspondent, CBS News
