He walked in front of his team and rallied them into battle from the front, not the rear. He didn’t ask his men to do anything he wasn’t willing to do himself.
Readers’ Favorite Review
The memory of Gordon J. Lippman was honored and I liked how the author provided a look at the man behind the uniform as opposed to simply speaking about his valor in combat… This was an educational read and had a lot of thought behind it. Readers with an interest in biographies that touch on history from the last century will enjoy this book.
Feathered Quill Judge’s Review
Editing, spelling, grammar is very clean, nice job.
By contextualizing the history of significant world events and putting this man’s place in history in clearer focus, you will … watch him snatch victory from certain defeat in devoted service to the American ideals of truth, freedom and justice.
Books in Review II

Great documentation of military war history.
In one engagement in Korea, he purposely drew the enemy fire in order to save casualties among his men, according to his commendation for a Silver Star.
