Book service for veterans

This Veterans Day, the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, Library of Congress, joins the nation in commemorating those who have served in the armed forces.

Through a national network of regional libraries, NLS offers a wide selection of books and magazines in audio and braille. The service is free to any qualified American but is particularly popular with veterans and veterans groups.

For their reading pleasure, NLS maintains an extensive collection of military history and biographies, ranging from classics to current best sellers. Recent addition to the collection include Andrew Roberts' "Napoleon and Wellington: The Battle of Waterloo — and the Great Commanders Who Fought It," and "Beyond Glory: Medal of Honor Heroes in their Own Words," by Larry Smith.
