Interesting stories, let down by medial writing skills. The intense emotional potential of such tales as near-death scrapes, regret for not caring for one's men, guilt and hatred in a Christian's heart, are not given the poignancy and power that they deserve. The writer organizes each chapter by the individual, yet he jumps around the chronology of each person's life, breaking the flow and power of the story. There were indeed some touching, moving stories, but the overall style deterred me.

This was a good book. If you are a religious person in general, you would enjoy this perspective of WWII. It takes you down the stories of a verity of people who were involved with WWII and how they found God. They came from all different types of religious backgrounds. If your squemish about the ugly side of war, I wouldn't recomend this book. It goes into some detail of the ugly side of war. Overall it was a good book.
Thiis a decent read. Per the title, this is a series on stories on WWIIi heroes of different shapes and sizes. What ties them together is their Christian faith.

Overall found their stories ok.
I liked what I read, but I didn't get through the whole thing. It just didn't make me want to ignore chores and read!
