Books: by Title: Hometown Heroes: Western New Yorkers in Desert Storm
Hometown Heroes is not a book about war. It's a book about people and how their lives were touched by Desert Storm. Thousands of Western New Yorkers played many roles in Desert Storm. Their sagas are woven together in a lively text that affords a unique glimpse of the war effort.
Authors Brian Meyer and Tom Connolly interviewed more than one
hundred people, from Buffalo-area soldiers who lived in the
scorching sands of Saudi Arabia, to peace activists who promoted
dialogue back home. This is a story about how local residents
responded to an event of historical proportions.
