About this title

Synopsis:

Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul will inspire and touch any veterans and their families, and allow others to appreciate the freedom for which they fought.

A compelling collection of the true-life experiences of extraordinary men and women in every branch of service, who changed the course of history by their acts of valor in World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War. Their experiences offer a glimpse of timeless history, revealing moments of compassion, bravery, respect and reverence. With chapters on Above and Beyond, The Home Front, The Front Lines, Coming Home, Healing, Brothers in Arms and Honoring Those Who Served, this collection relays heroic deeds, acts of compassion and empathy, fears confronted, and victories attained.

This is a wonderful tribute to anyone who gave in service to their country, as well as to their families.

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

A Moving Tribute to Veterans

Gettysburg, Iwo Jima, Anzio, Guadalcanal, Omaha Beach, the Chosin Reservoir, Hamburger Hill. These places are woven into our national psyche because we all know someone who selflessly served their country in faraway places like these, defending the freedom we all share. Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul celebrates these extraordinary men and women who changed the course of history.

You will be overcome with emotion from these powerful true stories of veterans and their families, many of whom are sharing their experiences for the first time. Whether they were Prisoners of War, Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, USO volunteers, loved ones who waited at home, or GIs who battled daily in the trenches, they all put their dreams on hold, held fast to their faith and overcame their fears in the name of freedom.

Whether you are a veteran yourself, are related to one or simply enjoy the rights that they fought so hard to defend, this remarkable book will leave you with a heightened admiration for our nation's best.
