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.

Scott Turow's good writing but in a different setting from his usual courtroom dramas. It gave me a better understanding of the soldiers in WW II.

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.

Stewart Dubinsky knew his father, David, had served in World War II, but had been told very little about his experiences. When he finds, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters for a former fiancee' and learned of David's court-martial, Stewart is driven to uncover the truth about this engimatic, distant man he never knew.

Another excellent book by Scott Turow. A son's search for his father's activities as a lawyer during WWII.

It was a great read. The back pannel summary did not do the book justice. A facinating blend of history and fiction.
