ARLINGTON, Va., April 18, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- The highly anticipated autobiography of former FCC commissioner James H. Quello, "My Wars: Surviving WWII & The FCC," has been released by the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution. Commissioner Quello's dedication to his country truly exemplifies the spirit of what Tom Brokaw of NBC Nightly News called The Greatest Generation.

"My Wars" follows Commissioner Quello's journey from his youth in a mining town in northern Michigan and as a student at Michigan State University, now home to the James H. and Mary B. Quello Center for Telecommunications Management and Law, through six World War II amphibious landings, to his service in the FCC. It is the story of a man who has dedicated his life's energy to the betterment of his country from the Great Depression and World War II, and through six administrations worth of battles in the world of communications policy.

Senator Daniel K. Inouye comments, " `My Wars' ... will be an inspiration to people struggling to overcome personal challenges..."

Former FCC chairman Dick Wiley describes Quello as a "... physical and mental marvel and a wonderful human being to boot ..."

"`My Wars' is the extraordinarily human story of a soldier, a broadcaster and a public servant who became a legend in his own time- and on his own terms," says Kenneth Brown, President of the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution.

"My Wars" is $21.95 and is available at www.adti.net/shopping_cart/publications.html or you can mail your order with a check made out to the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution to:
