Book Signing
Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 2:00 pm"Heroes All" by Donna Hanson
"Heroes All" is a story of a single amphibious ship and her crew amongst the thousands of ships that took part in WW II. The sailors that served on the Landing Ship Tank, or LST, were truly unsung heroes in that war and they remain so today.  The reader is first introduced to the men, the sea, and war. Then Donna makes the transition to the action of rescues and the beach landings during Operation Torch. Finally, she gives the reader some insights into the men of the story after the war in their last days. "Heroes All" is a wonderful tribute to a tiny slice of "America's Greatest Generation" and to Donna's own father.
