A tale of life, love, and growing up as part of The Greatest Generation, Unlikely Warrior is one memoir you ll never forget.

Beginning and ending in the same small Oklahoma town, Robert Lovell's story could be that of almost any other member of ''The Greatest Generation'' in America's history. Told in frank yet innocent details, Lovell's story comes to life in more details than you would find in a history book.

This honest and touching memoir starts out with summers in the Scouts and faint radio murmurs of unrest in faraway places. As World War II creeps ever closer to the American consciousness, Lovell finds himself in basic training, shooting targets and learning codes.

Stationed in Germany during the latter part of the war, Lovell turns 19 just weeks before V-E Day. By the time he turns 20 -- just ten years after the start of the story, Lovell has faced more than most people do in a lifetime.

A first-hand memoir of one of the most pivotal decades in the history of the United States, Unlikely Warrior was put to paper at the insistence of the author's grown children. Its lessons, however, can benefit all of us.
