Final Salute

Book Digest Rocky Mountain News reporter Jim Sheeler won the Pulitzer Prize for the story on which this book is based. Marine Major Steve Beck has the onerous task of personally notifying the families of U.S. troops killed in combat. Beck and his efforts to comfort the families make for a grim and tearful story—and a much-needed reminder of the ravaging impact American casualties have. A sad but necessary story, well told.
