Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window
Ordinary Heroes

The true story of six brothers serving in World War II.

Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window starts on May 4th, 1945 when the family receives a telegram informing them that one of the six Koski brothers has been killed in combat. The book is the story of events leading up to that day. It is the story of a poor immigrant family struggling to survive the Great Depression. It is the story of the six Koski brothers, the men they served with, and the millions of Allied soldiers who sacrificed so much to win World War II. It is the story of world events, great leaders, and ordinary people who rose to meet the extraordinary challenges of their time.

Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window is a non-fiction book, but it is not a dry, historical account. It weaves the story of the six Koski brothers into a gripping war-time saga; a detailed, accurate depiction of the real-life experiences of these ordinary soldiers, these ordinary heroes, drawn against the backdrop of those most tumultuous times.

Ordinary Heroes is available in print and in several innovative digital formats where photos come to life as video and source documents are just a mouse-click away. The digital formats are delivered with MediaTechnics Corporation's digital publishing technology previously used to delivery best-selling college computer textbooks such as New Perspectives on Computer Concepts and The Practical PC.

A 28-minute companion documentary video is also available on DVD.

Excerpt
Art poked his head out of the culvert. He heard the sound of an engine. Then, he saw a vehicle come over the crest of the hill. At first, he couldn’t tell what it was, but as it came closer he recognized the distinctive shape of a German scout car headed right towards them. Two German soldiers sat in the car, rifle barrels visible beside them.

Art propped his rifle on the edge of the snowy road and took aim at the Germans.

On the other side of the culvert, Ron carefully placed two grenades in the snow in front of him.

Neither man said anything as the German scout car moved towards them.
