THE GIFT OF VALOR by Michael Phillips

The Gift Of Valor by Michael M. Phillips

 Book in stores on May 31, 2005

 

“No one goes into battle expecting to be a hero. True valor is a spontaneous act to save your buddies, regardless of the personal cost you must pay. The Gift of Valor: A War Story is the story of extraordinary valor on the part of a brave marine.”
-- H. Norman Schwarzkopf, General, U.S. Army, Retired
