Carron Barrella about this book: "More Than 36 Days – Four Ordinary Men Face Extraordinary Circumstances" is the stories of 4 WWII United States Marines written by Carron Barrella, also a former Marine. It is not a war book as it focuses on the men. It is an effort to preserve history and connect generations and encompasses not only the war and the battle for Iwo Jima island in the Pacific but allows Don Whipple, Joe Weinmeier, Max Brown and Jim Blane to describe how the war experience defined them into the men they grew to become. It brings to life the boys, who went to war ...and the men, who came home. Educating and enlightening the reader in not only the cost of war, but the price of growing into manhood while fighting ...a message that is tremendously important now, with so many troops coming home. Most significantly, the book keeps us from forgetting about a generation, which personified quiet strength ...and the people inside the uniforms, who have fought for the freedoms that we enjoy to this very day.
"More Than 36 Days" appeals to audiences both old and young and has had exceptional reviews. These four men are refusing to let their experiences be in vain. They answered the call back in 1945 and are courageously willing to give us the opportunity to learn from them.
