More Information
Preface by Colonel Walter J. Boyne, former director of the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Since its Revolution-era formation as the Continental Army, the U.S. Army has earned a hard-won reputation for duty, courage, & brotherhood. But there are those whose exploits in combat have set them apart from their fellow soldiers, earning them the most cherished & honored citation there is - the Congressional Medal of Honor.

From the killing fields of the Civil War, through World Wars I and II, to the jungles of Vietnam & America's fight against terrorism around the world, thie comprehensive book features detailed information on 100 Army Corps Medal of Honor winners - including many lesser-known recipients - whose courage & sacrifice in the service of their country remain the foundations of the U.S. Army. Their achievements are chronicled in this complete & compelling memorial of those who have earned the right to be called "The Bravest of the Brave."
