I was privileged to serve in the company of heroes . . . like Jim Kasler. They were the ones who sustained me.
Jim Kasler is an indestructible man who persevered over death.
Experience the deeds and thoughts of a remarkable hero.
"James Helms Kasler won three Air Force Crosses, the only man in history to do so, and is thus a hero to the third power. His life is told in powerful terms in this excellent biography, which benefits greatly from having two highly qualified writers and researchers as authors."
This is not your usual run of the mill biography. This is the story of a warrior. There are many types in the military: diplomats, politicians, sycophants, citizen soldiers, patriots, war lovers, otherwise unemployable, etc. They are all needed and, with good leadership, most perform well under stress. But, surprising as it may seem, the warriors are marked by their rarity. Jim Kasler is a WARRIOR. Having been a POW with Jim and being an aviator (Navy), I can verify that this account is reliable, factual, and even-handed. It doesn't try to tell any one else's story but Jim's own. It is not a revisionist history. It pulls no punches. It tells it like it is (was). It makes you proud to be an American. Thank God Jim Kasler was on our side.
