Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window is the compelling true story of one family, six brothers, and a world at war.

World War II was almost over when the Koski family received the telegram informing them that one of the Koski brothers had been killed in action.

This is the story of the events leading up to that day. It is the story of a poor immigrant family struggling to survive the Great Depression; the story of the six Koski brothers, the men they served with, and the millions of Allied soldiers who sacrificed so much to save the world during the dark days of World War II. This is the story of the rise of Fascism and the failed politics of appeasement; the story of Hitler and Chamberlain, Churchill and Roosevelt. It is the story of world events, powerful people, and the ordinary people who rose to meet the extraordinary challenges of their time.

Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window weaves the story of the six Koski brothers into a gripping war-time saga. This is not a dry historical record. It is a detailed, accurate depiction of the real-life experiences of these ordinary soldiers, these ordinary heroes, drawn against the backdrop of those most tumultuous times. Also see the documentary film Ordinary Heroes listed on Amazon.
