Reviews - What do customers think about All for the Flag?

All for the Flag - a must read  Sep 29, 2003
I have already written a review of All for the Flag, and it appears below. However, it indicates the reviewer as jjswenning, instead of me, Buck Martin. It also designates only one star which I guess was my mistake. It should be FOUR stars. Everything else in my review is accurate. It's a great book!
All for the Flag - a must read for military history buffs.  Sep 29, 2003
I am a friend of John Swenning, the author of All for the Flag, and even at the risk of being considered biased, I feel compelled to share my reactions to this wonderful story.

The story focuses on the author's heroic uncle, Gust Junior Swenning, who was killed in a World War II night time naval battle at Guadalcanal. He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross and a World War II warship was named in his honor.

Any veteran or family member of a veteran will emotionally relate to this book. There are many stories out there about similar heroes who have not been the subject of a book. There are many families who have endured similar hardship and tragedy during war who have not been the subject of a book.

This book is a story about and a tribute to them as well.All for the Flag is written in a way that will make World War II and other veterans and their families cry, laugh, and, most importantly, feel great pride. For that reason alone, it is worth a read.

All for the Flag should become the subject of a movie, not just for Gust Junior Swenning, but for all the men who so heroically and loyally served our great country during World War II.

All For The Flag  Sep 28, 2003
Mr. Swenning has captured the deep family connections and the perils of war in his ALL FOR THE FLAG. The research into Junior Swenning's boyhood and the family relationships is a touching revelation. One follows the hardships and joys of Junior as a boy and the character traits instilled within him through strong family ties. These traits sustain him and surfaces in a heroic manner when faced with the commitment to duty and service.

I have read numerous historical accounts of the personal and tragic stories of WW2, but I think Mr. Swenning has captured the heroic actions and the emotional trauma in the life of Junior Swenning in a way that will always be in the reader's heart. It has been said that heroes are made, not born. I don't know if I agree with that analysis or not. I just know that Junior Swenning's life prepared him for that moment in time when he was capable of doing what needed to be done. A hero indeed.

The hero of this historical accounting left this life at an early age, we like to think. But if there were words of remembrance that could be expressed I think none better could be chosen than to say, "He finished well".
