Ordinary Heroes is a tribute to the millions of men and women who served in WW II who exhibited outstanding heroism in the face of War. They stepped through this chaos and carried on with a life of meaning and worth. As seen through the eyes of a son who wanted to know his dad's story, which he never discusses.
A complete change of subject for Scott Turow, but written well (as are his mysteries) This book describes the secret life that a son discovers when, after the death of his father; he reads the letters written by his father during WWII. There is also conflict with family members who do not want it all forgotten.
