A Patriotic Pick: September 2022

Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Elizabeth von Hassell, executive director of the National Sporting Library & Museum in Middleburg, Virginia:
- The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman. Newsweek called this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic about the early days of World War I, first published in 1962, “a brilliant piece of military history which proves up to the hilt the force of Winston Churchill’s statement that the first month of World War I was ‘a drama never surpassed.’”
Each year, the Grateful American™ Foundation, through its Book Prize, honors excellence in children’s historical nonfiction and fiction focused on the people and events that have shaped the U.S. since its birth. To learn more about the prize, click here.
