Whitefish Bay TALKS: Mettle & Honor: Wisconsin Stories from the Battlefield 6:30 pm

Thu, Jan 24

Whitefish Bay TALKS: Mettle & Honor: Wisconsin Stories from the Battlefield

About the book:  Traditional history books provide richly-detailed chronicles of America’s most important battles but pale in comparison to eyewitness accounts from those who were there; at Normandy, Iwo Jima, Inchon, Khe Sanh, Kabul and Fallujah. In “Mettle & Honor,” Wisconsin veterans, interviewed by Emmy Award-winning journalist Mark Concannon, share their stories from the battlefield, capturing all the emotions of war; a clear sense of duty, the fear of young soldiers in combat, the humor resulting from the occasional absurdities of military life and the unique sense of pride that one can only realize from serving our country.
