From their acts of self-sacrifice to their astonishing bravery, these thirteen soldiers embody the best America has to offer. “We were not looking for thirteen stories of supermen or superwomen,” the authors say. “We wanted to write straightforward, honest accounts of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.” In THIRTEEN SOLDIERS, John McCain and Mark Salter remind us that “we owe veterans, the living and the dead, a country that remains worthy of their sacrifice. And we owe them our respect for the truth of what they did.” ABOUT JOHN MCCAIN Senator John McCain served in the United States Navy from 1954 until 1981.
