Here are the remarkable stories of some of America's great war heroes—men who have won their country's highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor. Chosen from among the veterans of two World Wars, as well as the War in Korea, these men all earned their Medals in the only way this highly honored decoration can be won: by a deed of personal bravery or self-sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty. Sergeant York, Audie Murphy, Father O'Callahan, Butch O'Hare, and General William Dean are but five of the outstanding Americans whose exciting and inspiring deeds are recorded in this book.
