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 features the thrilling stories that are the fruit of Mark Lee Greenblatt s interviews with brave American servicemen from twenty-first century wars These men of the Army, the Navy, and the Marines have risked their lives several times over for their country as well as their fellow troops and civilians. 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 in this book. Detailing incredible and evocative feats including an Army pilot who rescued two of his downed fellow soldiers in hostile territory and strapped himself to the helicopter s exterior for the flight to the hospital Greenblatt provides glimpses into the minds of these soldiers, sailors, and Marines as they face gut-wrenching decisions and overcome enormous odds. However, this book is much more than tales of riveting action. Each chapter goes beyond linear combat stories to explore each hero s motivations, dreams, and the genuine emotions that were evoked in the face of extreme danger. Readers will be transported to a variety of settings from close-quarters urban fighting in Iraq to mountainside ambushes in rural Afghanistan and a mid-night rescue in the middle of the Atlantic as they accompany the men who do not see themselves as heroes, but as patriots in the line of duty.
