Synopsis

Of the 13 million who served during World War II, only 433 received our country's highest award for valor -- and only 190 of those brave men survived to receive their medals. This book vividly chronicles their almost superhuman feats of selfless courage. We witness the climactic moments and brave deeds that made history in World War II: the bombing of Pearl Harbor, where fifteen men earned the medal; the vicious, desperate fighting in the Pacific islands; the invasion on the beaches of Normandy, and other crucial battles in the European theater, as the history of World War II unfolds in the heroic deeds of the men who won the war.
