Her Holiday Hero by Margaret Daley When Captain Jake Tanner rescues Josh Langford from three bullies he had no idea his world was about to change. Emma Langford trains service dogs and feels Jake could really use a service dog to help with his PTSD. The author Margret Daley did an outstand job of bringing the characters to life. She was able to touch two tough subjects that affect many today, bulling and military PTSD. With this book she brought honor to our service men and women. This is the second book in the series Caring Canines but it can be read as a stand alone. I really enjoyed this inspirational romance and highly recommend it to others.

I ordered this book for my husband as he loves to read about military life and to get an inside look at the history and life of submarines. He thought it was a fasinating book and very well written.

Very interesting book with lots of pointers for better management. I like the fact that it is written in plain English, is easily read and is applicable to all leaders..not just military. The many sidebars of quotes from all walks of life certainly add meaning. I have a large collection of management/leadership books and this book is certainly a "keeper" that I will refer to many times.

This is an excellent read. A fast paced page turner. Gregory Freeman takes time to explain the political situation of the past in Yugoslavia and how it relates to the present while narrating one heck of a true life adventure story. This previously untold story of risk, heroism, danger, luck, and success is proof that truth is far more interesting than fiction. A person would have a difficulty time inventing these events. Buy this book and read it. You will be entertained and will learn a lot about a part of the world that most US residents don't really understand. Hopefully someone will make this into a movie.

Excellent sequel to "An Army At Dawn" which brings the initial entry of US forces into WWII. Firther brings to life the activities, movements and decisions made taking the war into Sicily and Italy. Superbly researched. Well written.

The second volume in a trilogy by Rick Atkinson on the US Army in Europe during World War II, Day of Battle describes the invasions of Sicily and Italy and the subsequent struggle up the Italian Peninsula. Atkinson brings this frequently neglected story to life with eye witness accounts based on extensive research. When one GI learned that it cost the Allies about $2500 to kill each enemy soldier in Italy, he confided to his diary that it would be better to just buy the enemy out and let everyone go home. Atkinson┐s deft handling of personalities is enlightening. While the battle raged to advance on Rome, Gen George Patton paced the marble floors of his palatial headquarters in Palermo -- banished from the action by his inexcusable assault on two American soldiers suffering from battle fatigue. Overshadowing Allied plans and operations in Italy, the buildup and planning for OVERLORD goes forward in Great Britain. Highly recommended.
