Book Overview
Walsh does a service to patriots everywhere. His must-read book allows the reader to work 'the why' around in his mind--and come to an understanding of real heroism. --Steve Bannon What are we willing to die for? Michael Walsh restores the dignity of lost concepts like honor, duty, sacrifice and patriotism for our unheroic age. What is heroism? What are its moral components--altruism, love, self-sacrifice? Why was it once celebrated, and now often dismissed as anachronistic? In this dramatic and readable account of last stands in history--famous or otherwise--Walsh explores the stakes that led men at very different times and places to face overwhelming odds and certain death for the sake of family, home and country. In Last Stands , Walsh writes about battles in which a small group faced overwhelming odds, and all too often died to the last man--battles like Thermopylae, the Ronceveaux Pass, the Alamo, the siege of Malta, Little Big Horn, Stalingrad, Rorke's Drift, and the Warsaw Ghetto--explaining why they were fought, what their ultimate outcome was, and their afterlife in history, myth and culture.
