Two months ago, I received a five-star review from mcampey on October 27, which I shall share:
Need More Stars!
This little volume is a welcome dessert while dining on American History. Surber has found so many exceptional people that one volume cannot contain them all; therefore, I hope he writes others. Many highlighted in this 50 are familiar to most by deed if not by name. However, I found myself crying during one morning train commute when reading about the young WWII soldier that was armed with only a flame thrower. Get the book, have a little feast of your own.Thank you. That man is Woody Williams and he is still alive and well and living in Barboursville, West Virginia.
"Exceptional Americans" is available here.
