Where the Birds Never Sing


Jack Sacco has paid his father and all those who have ever served this country the ultimate tribute. Where the Birds Never Sing is an honest, moving portrait of his father, an American soldier in World War II, who fought for everything that makes our nation great.


Thanks to men like Jack Sacco, Americans will never lack for stories of heroes. And thanks to men like his father, Joe, we'll never forget how heroes are made.

RebeccasReads recommends Where the Birds Never Sing as a riveting biography of the ordinary, sometimes hilarious and always hair-raising adventures of one young soldier, a boy who did the right thing, fought the good fight, and came home a man.

When I started reading Where the Birds Never Sing, I didn't realize I was in store for much more than a mere book about WWII; I was in for a life-altering experience. 


This book is on my top 5 list and has made its way into the personal library which I am compiling for my children to be able to enjoy one day. 


They’ll find amusement in the Harry Potter novels and maybe even learn something from the classics of Dickens and Shakespeare, but they will experience an astonishing true adventure when the time comes for them to pick up Where the Birds Never Sing and will have their entire perception of the world changed.
