World War II
This book is a memorial to the men of Schuyler County who made the supreme sacrifice. They died through no lack of courage, skill or training; for a blind fate singled out her victims. A few breaths marked the boundary line between continued life and a death that wore many different disguised. Yet they never faltered. Simply, and without false heroics, they accomplished a heroic task. Meither the greatness of their deeds nor the immensity of their country's deby can be measured by mere words.
