Baker & Taylor
Collects interviews with Marines, soldiers, and sailors who have served in twenty-first-century wars and explores their motivations, dreams, and emotions felt during times of extreme danger.

Valor is the fruit of Mark Lee Greenblatt’s interviews with brave veterans who have incredible stories to tell. Many of these soldiers have risked their lives several times over for their fellow soldiers and their country. Still, until now, their stories have largely gone unnoticed by the public, perhaps lost in the frenzied and often nasty debate surrounding the wars of the twenty-first century. As the author writes, “This generation does not have an Audie Murphy. I set out to change that with this book.” From the close-quarters urban Iraq war to rural Afghanistan and the stormy Atlantic, Greenblatt’s accounts allow readers a glimpse into the heart and soul of true heroes.
