What Do Critics Say About The Book?

Ery Publishing

June 2001

A number of biographies of World War II veterans, most of them from the Mid Ohio Valley, men who risked everything to preserve our freedom. Also chronicled inside the book is the story of Hershel "Woody" Williams, West Virginia's only living Medal of Honor recipient for his 'conspicuous gallantry' on Iwo Jima, in which he took out several Japanese pillboxes on February 23, 1945.
