From the first parachute drops in North Africa to the final battles in Germany, U.S. Ranger and Airborne troops saw the worst action of World War II. In Beyond Valor, Patrick O'Donnell, a pioneer of Internet-based "oral history" who has collected the first-person stories of hundreds of veterans on his online oral history project, re-creates the frontline experience in stunning detail, weaving together more than 650 "e-histories" and interviews into a seamless narrative.
In recollections filled with pain, poignancy, and pride, veterans chronicle the destruction of entire battalions, speak of their own personal scars, and pay tribute to their fallen colleagues. Beyond Valor brings to light the hidden horrors and uncelebrated heroics of a war fought by a now-vanishing generation and preserves them for all future generations.

Patrick K. O'Donnell is the creator of The Drop Zone (www.thedropzone.org), the first online oral history project and award-winning virtual community for WWII veterans. The project has won praise from newspapers around the country, including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, and the Los Angeles Times. O'Donnell lives in Fairfax Station, Virginia.

    Interesting so far. this was a gift to my father ( a retired marine) that loves history. My father has started reading it and then we left for out of town for the holidays! He loves it.
