From the Preface

This book is about the American spirit, embodied in the men and women who fought in World War II. Henry Bloch, through his early life and his decision to join the fight for freedom, especially embodies this spirit. In the process we learn not only about Henry, but we also get extraordinary insight into those who fought for liberty alongside him and faced their own mortality just as he did. Through Henry, we also learn the remarkable impact these brave men and women had on the past seventy years of American history.
Henry’s story is unique but gives us insight into why we call this the Greatest Generation. They not only risked their lives to make the world free again; they often took great risks to make America great once they returned from the fields of battle. Like Henry, this generation never lost their humanity or their optimism. Americans will forever be indebted to Henry Bloch and those he represents.

Navigating a Life offers insight into the terrifying wartime era and immense pressures that Henry survived, including the challenge of learning how to work as a group with his Horham crew without any prior experience. Navigating a Life is fascinating, inspirational, and highly recommended for both public library collections and personal reading lists. —Michael Dunford, Midwest Book Review
