Here is an inspirational short-story collection concerning individuals who persevered through extremely difficult situations. As one would anticipate, many of the pieces involve soldiers in battle or people facing natural disasters. Most stories end with the phrase, “Fight On!” (See for yourself the two-word phrases that a few other stories end with.) The author himself has “fought on” since suffering a broken neck a number of years ago. He continues to be in daily pain from the injury.

An occasional saying, hymn, or Scripture passage fills out the book. One helpful aspect of Fight On! might be its rather lengthy index. Gipp also included a bibliography. This book might especially appeal to upper elementary and junior high boys.
