Moment of Courage

Scott Brown
In Stock


  • On Iwo Jima, boys became men in the crucible of pain, suffering, and enormous sacrifice. They jumped on grenades and ran into unrelenting firepower to save their comrades. They ran and crawled and groveled in the dirt to do their duty. We need boys like that today. I hope this book can help a few of them understand the sacrifices of heroism.

     
    This is a handbook for manly courage. It displays the stories and language of the heroism of our boys during the battle for Iwo Jima. Boys need stories with real men who went before them to show them what courage looks like. Iowa Jima was a factory for courage.
