War Bonds Love Stories from the Greatest Generation

War Bonds eloquently tells the stories of the love for the 'girl back home' which sustained and gave courage to so many young men during times of great peril. A must read for any romantic.

TONY LAMANNA, DIRECTOR OF INLAND NORTHWEST HONOR FLIGHT, January 2015


War Bonds Love Stories from the Greatest Generation

Mrs. Hval is a first-rate professional writer. War Bonds should be a bestseller, and not only a bestseller but a long-term seller.

PATRICK F. MCMANUS, NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE BO TULLY MYSTERIES., January 2015


War Bonds Love Stories from the Greatest Generation

War Bonds is more than an introduction to World War II history. Every story in this collection fairly resonates with that mysterious kind of love we all hope to find—the kind that conquers and heals and lasts forever.

Featured Review

A Street in Arnhem The Agony of Occupation and Liberation

This is well written account of the battles along the Utrechtseweg, including some great descriptive passages on urban anti-tank operations by PIAT wielding paratroops. The Germans had a surprising amount of armor in the Arnhem area, including quite a few StuG III's, and several French Char B flamethrower tanks. By the end of the nine day ordeal, even Tiger II's were appearing on the battlefield as well. As well as the great text written from a military perspective, there are a great many well written, very descriptive passages from the civilian perspective. These passages give the book a welcome "extra" viewpoint. The use of first person accounts used throughout this book make the text very "readable", giving the reader a good sense of what it was like for those involved.

ARMOR MODELING AND PRESERVATION SOCIETY , November 2014


Fabled Fifteen The Pacific War Saga of Carrier Air Group 15

"...strives to put a more human face on a topic that is often presented as a simple series of basic chronological facts... presents the history of the CVG-15 from the perspective of those who made the history. This is much more important that just facts and figures...packed with vivid accounts of the men who fought the war...highly recommend it. You cannot distill human history down to a chart."

Featured Review

Assault from the Sky U.S Marine Corps Helicopter Operations in Vietnam

...a fitting tribute to our Marines of the Vietnam era...The inspirational and at times tragic events vividly described by Camp make this work an easy yet important read. Every Marine is indeed a rifleman first and foremost. Assault from the Sky is a timely and valuable reminder of this ethos.

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

"The writing is fresh and intense and paints a good picture of World War Two front line combat…an excellent book for anyone who wants to understand the bigger picture of company level combat within the 101st Division of WWII. Also anyone familiar with the Band of Brothers story will want to read this book." MILITARY REVIEW

Without question, this is a volume that will be read and valued by many. In the following years, this will be a book sought out by those seeking an understanding the critical role of logistics in the war in Afghanistan and how the combat loggie adapted and met the incredible challenges the war presented.

Foot Soldier for Patton, A The Story of a "Red Diamond" Infantryman with the U.S. Third Army

a treasure that told of front line combat with honesty…enriched the study of history by providing the perspective of one man who had experienced the horror of war and the joy of homecoming. I had certainly enjoyed this book.

The Lieutenant Don't Know One Marine's Story of Warfare and Combat Logistics in Afghanistan

Where ever you work: be it in an office, a factory, in sales, or even a library, we all were the new person at some point in our career. Fortunately, most of us didn't need to learn our profession under hostile fire like Lieutenant Clement did. Weathering out a tough situation is never a comfortable proposition, but it is part of the human condition. The realization that learning is still an option is applicable for everyone at all stages of any career. Jeff Clement wrote an interesting and honest account of his failure and victories, I hope we can all learn from it.

THE RUTLAND HERALD , July 2014


Unsung Eagles True Stories of America’s Citizen Airmen in the Skies of World War II

... a fine book about the citizen of airman of World War II. This is an oral history instead of a traditional history. It is the remembrances of the ordinary men who answered the call of their country. ..It doesn't give you the global, geopolitical strategies or the military master plan. Instead you get snap shots of the young men as you put their piece of the puzzle into the larger picture. It helps to see the bigger picture a little more clearly from the average airman's point of view...enjoyable, easy reading, and well worth the purchase price. Well done!

KEPLER'S MILITARY HISTORY REVIEWS, June 2014


Featured Review

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

Everybody knows Easy Company. But until now, few knew Fox. This tick-tock account is beefed up with first-person reminiscences about events and exploits from D-Day and from Holland to Bastogne that are chunked into the narrative à la a video documentary.

WORLD WAR II MAGAZINE , March 2014


Featured Review

Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

Fighting Fox Company is a superb book and should be the new model for small unit histories. Terry Poyser and Bill Brown have done an outstanding job of research and have included an incredible amount of detail about the personnel, organization, and operations of the company, while integrating it into the narrative in a way that doesn't interfere, but enhances it. The quality of the photographs are first rate and compare with those of Mark Bando's fine works. Through the photographs you get to put faces with the names of the officers and men in the book. The maps are plentiful and well done. There is a fine balance of first person accounts woven into the narrative, which is particularly good considering that this was their first published work. I hope that historians and authors will use this book as a model and a template for similar books. The only negative thing I can find about this book is the tag line of the title, The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers. Fox Company nor this book should take a backseat to Easy Company and Band of Brothers. This book is a must read for readers of World War II and airborne history. I highly recommend it.

PHIL NORDYKE, AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN , March 2014


Fighting Fox Company The Battling Flank of the Band of Brothers

The authors have done meticulous research and have been fortunate to still be able to gain first hand accounts from those who ‘were there and did that’! The detailed research and accessibility to the actual participants and circumstances of events covered, verify that what is documented is factual, and not embellished by ‘what ifs’!...For this reviewer the story of ‘Fighting Fox’ is again a definitive reminder and proof that, for every infantry rifle company be it airborne, glider, or straight leg, each becomes a ‘band of brothers’ during and forever following the first engagement with an equally determined and as well led and equipped enemy infantry unit. The uniforms and weaponry may differ—the ‘why we fight’ be diametrically opposed. But, the love of country will be equal, and, as well, the fear of death!

AIRBORNE QUARTERLY, February 2014

Valor in Vietnam Chronicles of Honor, Courage and Sacrifice: 1963 - 1977

...focuses on nineteen stories of Vietnam, stories of celebrated figures in the veteran community, compelling war narratives, vignettes if battles, and the emotional impact on the combatants. It is replete with leadership lessons and valuable insights that are just as applicable today as they were forty years ago...intense, emotional and highly personal.

Unsung Eagles True Stories of America’s Citizen Airmen in the Skies of World War II

...crisply written book. It is an engaging history that gives a personal context to the great air battles of Of World War II.

FLYPAST , January 2014


Battered Bastards of Bastogne

"fleshes out in vivid detail the entire story of the Screaming Eagles' valiant struggle. It gives us information not covered in the other books by interweaving the stories of 530 soldiers interviewed who were on the ground or in the air over Bastogne. They lived, made this history and much of it is told in their own words...did a superb job of telling the history the 101st Airborne Division. I appreciated the way the book is both descriptive and detailed. It gives you a feel that you are there with the men. The author did an outstanding job in this area. This is must reading for any student of World War II history."

KEPLER'S MILITARY HISTORY , December 2013


Hell's Highway Chronicle of the 101st Airborne Division in the Holland Campaign, September - November 1944

Hell's Highway gives us something not covered in the other books. It tells of the Dutch people and members of the underground and their liberation after five years of oppression by the Nazis. It shares how they have never forgotten America's airborne heroes and how the 101st endangered and even sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the Netherlands and Europe.... superb job of telling the history the 101st Airborne Division during Operation Market Garden.

KEPLER'S MILITARY HISTORY, December 2013


Crossing the Wire One Woman's Journey into the Hidden Dangers of the Afghan War

“…In places it is raw, and this rawness can be uncomfortable. It also creates a strange sort of war memoir. There are the usual: tension and heroism, boredom and bureaucracy, bullets and bombs. But there are also the unusual: love and heartbreak, self-doubt and jealousy, fear and pride. Cardinalli falls in and out of love with a Marine, is captured and escapes from a local mullah, sits for days staring at blowing sand, marvels at the confidence of youth and its death and rebirth in the face of war, and strives to make her work matter. It's a vital mix that keeps you turning pages...The larger and better story—of a woman in many ways unprepared for the job she found herself doing, yet able to turn her native intellect, passion, and doggedness to the task-is well worth telling

NEW MEXICO MAGAZINE, December 2013


No Better Place to Die Ste-Mere Eglise, June 1944—The Battle for la Fiere Bridge

"outstanding memoir...accounts and memoirs from many of his comrades plus supporting documents that give a fuller picture of what the 82nd accomplished on D-Day and the days after."

Unsung Eagles True Stories of America’s Citizen Airmen in the Skies of World War II

“Unsung Eagles offers a rare cockpit perspective of World War II in the air. Jay Stout’s anthology features an extraordinary variety of accounts from airmen--many now deceased—that will become more valuable as the generation that fought the greatest air campaigns of all time continues to depart the pattern.”

BARRETT TILLMAN, AUTHOR OF WHIRLWIND: THE AIR WAR AGAINST JAPAN, 1942-1945 , August 2013


Featured Review

Unsung Eagles True Stories of America’s Citizen Airmen in the Skies of World War II

"Jay Stout has written one of the finest tributes to the fighting men of the greatest generation, concentrating not on the famous aces whose actions are well known, but on the “ordinary man” who rose to greatness when the situation demanded it. The author’s deep research and innate writing ability merge to make this book a must for every aviation library."

WALTER BOYNE, FORMER DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL AIR & SPACE MUSEUM OF THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION, AND BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, August 2013
