A World War II historical novel with a magnificent love story to boot.

For Love and Glory is the story of William Endicott Brewster Talbot, a Yankee from an old and distinguished but thoroughly dysfunctional family, scarred by suicide, abuse and greed through 45 tumultuous years of American history. It is a story of World War II as Talbot joins the army and becomes a hero fighting with such real historic figures as Generals George Patton and Omar Bradley and in such real battles as D-Day, the Allied landings on Omaha Beach, Patton's break-out and dash across France, and the Battle of the Bulge. But ultimately, Love and Glory is a love story as Talbot struggles to redeem a life without any joy or expectation of happiness until he finds Lady Sarah Hayward on a deserted English beach.
