This is a true story about men fighting in the...

I shed tears through the entire book. Such nobility and bravery makes one proud to be a part of the greatest country in the world.
Adam Makos is one of my favorite modern authors. He takes history and it's characters and creates a beautiful story of what it means to be American.

I was given the opportunity to read "Devotion" through an advanced reader's copy from a Goodreads give-away. I would have finished this book much quicker if I was not in the middle of peeling wallpaper and painting. "Devotion" is a well-written and researched book about the Korean War. Although i...
