About this Item

"Jerry Deiley has the mind and the heart of a historian. His interest is as simple as searching out stories of his ancestors and as complex as his need to put all Americans in perspective relating to their achievements and their place in the links that connect us all throughout our history. He exudes a palpable excitement in such human quaities as patriotism, valor, courage and morality. In this book he has chosen real live characters, some well known and others unheard of, to give us an up-close look at the personal contributions and sacrifices which have quietly influenced the direction of our country. The author has met, literally, hundreds of veterans while gathering his information. It was a daunting challenge. It required many hours of researching and careful attention to detail. You will see this when you read the words of veterans identified by name and organized from A to Z. You will be caught up in vivid accounts of their experience with warfare. And at the same time you will be privileged to witness the humanness that allows each of them a unique and personal response to the suffering they may have seen and perhaps a true hopefulness for the future.Jerry Deiley has presented his veterans in 'testimonial' style quoting their words verbatim in the context of an affidavit which is attested to and signed by each. It is a unique framework for their stories. It invites the reader's interest and definitely adds a surreal quality to the first-hand experience of those who fought for our country from the American Revolution to the days of our fighting in Iraq. Deiley feels honored to have met and known so many of these people and to have captured something of 'who they are.' My prediction is that this book will be recognized as an important work by those who see its very special perspective. Its new and fresh approach to tracing our military history. It gives us a rare and important look at the men and women who served along the periphery of our military as well as some of the most known and honored veterans ranging from the Rear Admiral to the buck Private, Those along the 'periphery' are, after all, waiting for the right time to step forward and become our new heroes." {Tom Hoy}. This book has 173 pages and is illustrated throughout. The book is a SIGNED AND DATED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Jerry Deiley. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this EXTREMELY SCARCE title.
