Back to work after the Memorial Day holiday, the unofficial start to summer, and a chance to unwind, meet with family and friends and remember those who have gone before us. Memorial Day began several years after the Civil War as Decoration Day, a holiday to decorate the graves of those who had died in wars. This week's eBooks feature stories of the men and women who have fought, and died, serving our country.
A Company of Heroes profiles 26 deceased members of the now-legendary Band of Brothers.
- The Harlem Hellfighters recounts the heroics and challenges that African-American soldiers faced in fighting for their country, and their freedom.
- The Last of the Doughboys features the stories of soldiers who fought in World War I, many conducted when the “doughboys” were over 100 years old.
