Riveting account of the young men from one small town in Virginia who gave the ultimate sacrifice in WWII. It was amazing to learn the back story not only of the young men, but also the women who loved them and watched them go off to war. I am familiar with this group as I live in Virginia but have yet to see the Memorial in Bedford. Like so many who fought in WWII, these were normal young men, trying to make a living in the newly post Depression Era. What they endured is amazing and to have lost so many of them in one battle adds a depth that many communities will never know. If you enjoyed Saving Private Ryan, then this is a book you will definitely not want to miss.
