Whatever happened to the greatest soldier of World War I? Idolized by millions, awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, Sergeant Alvin C. York returned from the battlefields of France to a hero's welcome. Refusing offers from Hollywood and Vaudeville, he turned his back on half a million dollars and went home to the hills of Tennessee, saying, "Uncle Sam's uniform ain't for sale." In the war, when he faced more than two dozen German machine guns all alone in the Argonne Forest, York had no time for heroic choices. He had to fight. His true hero's choice came later, in denying himself a life of ease and luxury to battle for rural education and Christian ideals against self-serving politicians, scheming businessmen, jealous adversaries, Hollywood hucksterism, and the IRS. Here, for the first time, is the complete story of America's greatest twentieth-century Christian patriot, based on new interviews with his children and other family members, Hollywood film archives, and York's own war diary and correspondence. His story is one of struggle, sacrifice, and ultimate triumph in the service of his mountain people, his beloved country, and his God. Illustrated with 16 pages of photos from the York family album.
In a world desperate for authentic heroes, the story of Alvin C. York reminds us of the true meaning of heroism. York's bravery on the battlefield made him famous, but it was his decision to turn down the easy riches of celebrity that secured his position as one of history's greatest Christian patriots. Based on new interviews with all of York's living children, and York's own diaries, this exhaustive biography follows the young soldier from the hills of Tennessee to the battlefields of France, down Broadway in a triumphant ticker-tape parade, and back home to his family farm where he spent the rest of his life in service to his community and his God.
