Reseña del editor:

May 4, 1945: World War II was almost over when the Koski family received the telegram informing them that one of the six Koski brothers had been killed in action.

This is the story of the events, both large and small, leading up to that day. It is the story of a poor immigrant family, struggling to survive the Great Depression; the story of the six Koski brothers, the men they served with, and the millions of Allied soldiers who sacrificed so much to save the world during the dark days of World War II. It is the story of the rise of Fascism and the failed politics of appeasement; the story of Hitler and Chamberlain, Churchill and Roosevelt. It is the story of world events, powerful leaders, and the ordinary people who rose to meet the extraordinary challenges of their time.

Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window weaves the story of the six Koski brothers into a gripping war-time saga. Ordinary Heroes is not a dry, historical account of events. It is a detailed, accurate depiction of the real-life experiences of these ordinary soldiers, these ordinary heroes, drawn against the backdrop of those most tumultuous times.

Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window brings history to life through the compelling true story of one family, six brothers, and a world at war.

From the islands of the Aleutians to the snows of the Ardennes, from the skies over southern Europe to the mountains of northern Italy, this book provides a compelling look into the real-life experiences of some of the ordinary heroes of World War II. This is the story of World War II as seen through the eyes of the young men who landed on the beaches, built the bridges, flew the bombers, and advanced under withering fire from enemy machine guns, mortars, and artillery.

In this book, you'll meet real soldiers who fought in some of the toughest battles of the war with units like the 332nd Engineers, the 301st Bomb Group Heavy, and the famed 10th Mountain Infantry Division. Through this book you will gain renewed appreciation for the millions of ordinary men and women who sacrificed so much to win World War II.
