“No Greater Valor” by Jerome Corsi is a challenging work for which to write a review. The content is good, the stories are compelling, and the characters are presented with compassion and care.
The difficulty I encountered was in the way it was written. The information is not chronologically presented in what, to me, would be a logical fashion.
This book is about the siege of Bastogne, Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II.
There were activities taking place in several different areas and under the command of different generals (and these commands changed over the days leading up to the height of battle).
I say all that to say, it would be complicated to present this information regardless of what method he used – chronological, geographical, command,etc.
That aside, the premise of the book is that God, through His Providence, led, guided, and directed the actions leading up to and during the siege and during the fierce battle and fighting which followed.
The book is well researched and the resources are wide ranging. Diaries, news accounts, after action reports, verbal histories, etc. were consulted and information gleaned for this work.
I’m glad I read it and I would recommend this book to my friends who are into military history. While the information goes much deeper than just the military aspect, the military theme woven throughout is indeed the core of the book.
