Book Overview

In honor of the 75th Anniversary of one of the most critical battles of World War I, the popular primetime Fox News anchor of The Story with Martha MacCallum pays tribute to the heroic men who sacrificed everything at Iwo Jima to defeat the Armed Forces of Emperor Hirohito--among them, a member of her own family, Harry Gray.

When news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor came over the radio in a New York diner on Sunday, December 7, 1941, patrons grabbed their coats and their children by the hand, left a few dollars on the table and briskly headed home. Everything was altered in an instant. They didn't know what they needed to do, but they knew where they needed to be: home.

Martha MacCallum's mother was a child in that diner that day, and her thoughts went to her teenage cousin Harry. In Unknown Valor, MacCallum follows Harry from life at home in Boston to the bloody battle on the island known as Iwo Jima. She follows her mother's family on the homefront, from the days before the war to the days of waiting on the front porch for Harry's letters.
