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.


~ From the Foreword by Senator Bob Dole

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.

Rebecca Brown


I have never before written to an author, but I just this morning finished your wonderful book, “Where the Birds Never Sing,” and I must tell you, I wept.


As I closed the cover, I wept and wept for all of the young men who served – those who died and those who came home forever changed. I wept for the heartaches of their loved ones and I wept out of pride for the character and courage of our soldiers.


I have cried at sad movies before, but I have never wept from the depths of my soul before.


I feel like I have been forever changed for having read it.  Thank you.
