Item description for A Thousand Shall Fall (Shiloh Legacy) by Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene...
Overview The Shiloh Legacy series covers the lives of four young soldiers and their families through these great events: the end of World War I in France, the return of the soldiers to America, the Roaring Twenties, the stock-market crash, the resulting Great Depression, and the rebuilding of lives that must follow. Yet with all the racial, social, and cultural intolerance that marked the day--seemingly immovable mountains in the lives of these characters--God works through the tragedy, the laughter, the pain, the joy, the dramatic, and the ordinary to create a yearning in their hearts for a faith that moves mountains.

More About Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene
BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 65 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.
Bodie began her writing career as a teen journalist for her local newspaper. Eventually her byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions (she’s best known as author of The Fall Guy) and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as “a writer with talent that captures the people and the times!” She has degrees in journalism and communications.
Brock has often been described by Bodie as “an essential half of this writing team.” With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children—Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie—and eight grandchildren. Their sons, Jake and Luke, are carrying on the Thoene family talent as the next generation of writers, and Luke produces the Thoene audiobooks.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Thousand Shall Fall (Shiloh Legacy)?
Great Historical Fiction Nov 7, 2006
Great historical fiction with an even more important underlying theme. Just finished books 1 & 2... I have learned a lot more about the American history ( e.g. the experience of WWI, and what our soldiers had to come home to... or, in book 2, the experience of what it was like to be around the incredible stock market run-ups). More importantly - I completely got wrapped up in the characters and how they responded to the highs and lows that ultimately come with life - and how their faith actually grows stronger as a result.
Matchless storytelling Nov 5, 2002
Bodie Thoene is a master story-teller. She weaves multiple plots, characters, and events, both small and large, into a seamless story that you simply don't want to put down. I am always disappointed when the book ends because I've become so wrapped up in the historically accurate world of the characters, and I am glad for the other books in the series I have yet to read! The world she depicts in The Shiloh Legacy series reflects the broad range of simple joys and heartbreaks of the average person or family. By the end of the novel, without realizing it, I've stopped to re-evaluate my own life and priorities and I see them in the bigger picture perspective. Excellent!
Excellent book and series Apr 24, 2000
This book/series, as are all the Thoene books, is a wonderful story about post WWI. The families and their daily living is written as if you were there. You become so involved in this book, that I wanted to read it in a day! The focus of the daily life in middle America post WWI is God centered. Wonderful Story!
