Product Details

Praise

“Kershaw continues to find fresh ways to look at [World War II]… It’s the perfect summer read for any military history buff.”Foreign Policy

Against All Odds achieves a pitch-perfect balance between a ground view of combat and the seismic forces that drew men like [Maurice] Britt and [Audie] Murphy to the killing grounds of Europe. Its prose is sharp, efficient and entertaining, its characters thoroughly human.”The Wall Street Journal

“Riveting.”World War II magazine

Against All Odds is a timely reminder of the horrors of war and valor and sacrifices of the Greatest Generation.”Booklist

“In his latest book of popular World War II history, bestselling author Kershaw tells the stories of four Americans who won the Medal of Honor and lived postwar lives that sometimes kept them in the public eye… Realistic portraits of four American superheroes.”Kirkus

“Alex Kershaw is the master of putting the reader in the heat of the action. Against All Odds is vivid and compelling, a crisp narrative about heroism, war, and going above and beyond the call of duty.”—Martin Dugard, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Killing the Mob and national bestselling author of Taking Paris
 
“Alex Kershaw understands what makes soldiers fight: their devotion to the man to their left and to their right. In Against All Odds, Kershaw continues to raise the bar with an unvarnished story of heroism during World War II, and a lasting tribute to the American soldier as liberator.”—Kevin Maurer, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of No Easy Day and author of Rock Force
 
“Nobody ‘wins’ the Medal of Honor, nor is it ‘awarded.’ It is earned under fire, often at the cost of one’s life and always in the face of ferocious hostile resistance. What sort of men do such deeds? Alex Kershaw knows. In Against All Odds, the renowned master of the battle narrative takes us right into the most perilous action in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and France alongside Maurice Britt, Michael Daly, Audie Murphy, and Keith Ware, heroes all. It’s a gripping, unforgettable story of undaunted courage in the heart of World War II.”—Daniel P. Bolger, Lt. Gen., U.S. Army Ret., and author of The Panzer Killers
