Publisher's Description

Growing up in the Tennessee hills, Alvin York was equallyrenowned as a marksman and as a hard-drinking brawler. A dramatic New Year’s conversionconvinced him that killing was against God’s will, and yet this shy, big-bonedmountaineer singlehandedly dispatched two dozen Germans and captured 132 in theclosing days of World War I. He earned the Medal of Honor and a ticker tapeparade but refused to cash in on his fame, insisting “Uncle Sam’s uniform ain’tfor sale.”

This succinct and gripping new account of Sgt. York’s remarkablelife includes details from exclusive interviews with the sergeant’s threesurviving children and information drawn from battlefield eyewitness reports andoriginal film studio archives: fresh reminders of the legacy of one of America’sgreat Christian patriots.
