Review by Congressman Duncan Hunter, California's 52nd District.
Eisenhower, Patton, Bradley, MacArthur...these are the heroes most commonly associated with WWII. Yet, the war displays a tapestry of millions of threads, each representing the experiences of common Americans who met and overcame the extraordinary challenges of those trying times. Individual character was displayed every minute of every day by heroic Americans at home and on the battlefields. These "average" Americans, unnoticed by historians, saved the world from the Axis powers through their individual actions. Each story is unique in its own particulars, yet common in its manifestation. Collectively, they represent the great American virtues of courage, patriotism, and goodness, Such is the story of Keith Turnham. Turnham, like millions of his fellow Americans, had to forego his education due to the advent of the war. He was thrust into combat, shot down, captured, and imprisoned by the Nazis. In "Death Denied," his day-to-day experiences are instructive to all who aspire to the robust patriotism reflected in our citizens. It was on the backs of our fighting warriors that the world's freedom was secured. Those were desparate years. Turnham's narrative reviews the goodness, generosity, and courage of an American GI. His ability to find humor in some of the most trying circumstances brings depth to this book. It is not only informative but extremely inspiring. I recommend it to all.
