I send the Ambrose family my deepest condolences.
I first became familiar with Dr. Ambrose as an undergraduate at Bridgewater State College. While taking a course of U.S. Foreign Policy since 1914, a classmate strongly recommended that I read Dr. Ambrose's "Eisenhower"; I did, and I was immediately hooked. I was even more impressed by "Nixon," in which he did a marvellous job of telling the story of a complex man in a manner that was objective, compelling, and fair. As a teacher, I've been pleased to use "Character above All" and "Biography of America" in my classroom; he played an significant part in each of these videos.
Dr. Ambrose was an academic historian who successfully reached the masses. If only more historians could do this so well! Thanks to his large body of work, his contributions will not be forgotten.

To the Ambrose family....
My sincerest sympathy on your staggering loss. In my life, Stephen Ambrose is a towering figure, although I never met him....Through his books, I feel I knew him. I challenge myself daily as a middle school American history teacher to instill in my students the love of America that resonates through Mr. Ambrose's books. I shall miss him and the many stories he had yet to write. But each time I pick up one of his books for a re-read, I shall say a prayer for you all.
God bless you in the coming days and months....
Sincerely, S. Richard, Sour Lake, Tx
Dear Ambrose family,
So sorry to hear of your husband's/father's death. He has touched us all in so many ways. I knew Barry from McMain Magnet school back in the 70's and have followed Dr. Ambrose through his books. Peace to you all.
Ms. Ambrose and family,
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Stephen. While I did not know him personally, I got to know his works because your daughter-in-law, Anne is a child hood friend of mine. I cannot express in words the sadness I have. Please accept my condolences and warm thoughts.
Dear Mrs. Ambrose and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss.
I never had Dr. Ambrose as a teacher
at UNO but would always see him in
the halls as I was coming to and from my history classes. He would always
have a warm smile and a wave.
He was always very approachable.
My husband, Ken Clay, and I are great
admirers of Steve's work. We will
miss him greatly at our house.
With Love and Prayers,
