NO GREATER VALOR by Jerome Corsi

*****                                                                          *****
The Siege of Bastogne And The
Miracle That Sealed Alled Victory
Jerome Corsi 


Jerome Corsi’s newest opus, No Greater Valor, examines the Siege of Bastogne—one of the most heroic victories of WWII—with a focus on the surprising faith of the Americans who fought there.
In December of 1944, an outmanned, outgunned, and surrounded US force fought Hitler’s overwhelming Panzer divisions to a miraculous standstill at Bastogne. The underdogs had saved the war for the Allies. It was nothing short of miraculous.
Corsi’s analysis is based on a record of oral histories along with original field maps used by field commanders, battle orders, and other documentation made at the time of the military command. With a perspective gleaned from newspapers, periodicals, and newsreels of the day, Corsi paints a riveting portrait of one of the most important battles in world history.

I've found that not every book can be graded the same.  It depends on how the reader perceives the book or how much content about the events the reader takes into account. A review is the reader's viewpoint and not every reader has the same viewpoint.  Some readers can point out the positive clear facts of nonfiction historical writing.  Of course the reader must take in to account that the ending of one book in not the last writing on a particular event.  There are always little historical tidbits that someone may find elsewhere that should fit into the historical book you are reading about.
This book should be a keeper on the shelf of anyone who is a history, military or WWII book lover.The author wrote this book to show that our forefathers that served during this time had immense strength, faith and courage as they fought and suffered the battles, the weather elements, the loss of their comrades and being away from their family.  As now in today's world,we owe such a debt to those men and women who serve in the war in many ways to protect us. To lay down their lives to keep us safe.
Hitler and his followers were evil and cruel. Mr. Corsi points out what various leaders brought to the war along with the history that was penned for future generations to read. Today's life is"instant" as life during the war wasn't.  People took time to write down what they saw and 
shared so that it could be remembered by the future generations.
This is a trip that everyone who loves history should take with the author during this battle in December 1944 and the results. As are the battles being fought in modern day be not forgotten, neither should those back then.The author gave all of us readers much to reflect on.  He gave us a book to keep for our children to pass to their children to remember those who gave up their lives for all of those living, dying and those not yet to be born into this world.

I was given a complimentary copy of NO GREATER VALOR from the author, Jerome Corsi and  BookLookBloggers for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
