By Stephen Page
With Home of the Brave, editor Jeffery Hess puts together a collection of short stories about people in the U.S. military. The period covered is from World War II to the present. Although many of the stories refer to war, very few depict actual battles.
Let me reiterate that these are stories about people—humane stories, humanistic statements, reports about humanity.
This book will appeal to almost every reader, civilian and military alike. Jeffery Hess does a fine job in choosing stories that have empathetic characters, hard-hitting human drama, and convincing plots. The tales stick with you, the reader, long after you read them. Some of these stories will shock you; some will hit you right where you live.
A portion of proceeds from each book sold is donated to USA Cares.
