(ACW Press, 2003; 331 pp., $24.95 — ISBN 1932124187).

“C-Rations For The Warrior’s Heart” is a collection of 20 stories about “men from different branches of the Armed Forces who put their lives on the line.” The majority of the stories are about WWII followed by Viet-Nam, Korea and Desert Storm. Most of the stories are by the author, a few by the individual himself. As noted by one Marine mentioned in both this book and Robert Boardman’s “Unforgettable Men in Unforgettable Times,” the stories “clearly reveal that the key element in winning wars resides inside the spirit of man.”
