The men and women of the US Armed Forces have built a reputation for bravery and performance in the name of freedom for causes around the world. The toll of war stretches far beyond simple casualty numbers, however. Its effects continue long after these heroes return home in the form of psychological and physical scars, as well as the unexpected battles many faced upon returning home.Wisconsin-based veterans advocate John Maino takes you along for a series of fascinating conversations with World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans and family members as they share their experiences in words and pictures. Read first-hand accounts of what it was like to persevere through the Battle of the Bulge in Europe, survive the bitter cold of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir in Korea, and endure the brutal conditions of the Vietnam jungles. Maino also introduces you to a special kind of hero who survived five years as a prisoner of war.
