KIRKUS REVIEW

Our nation's Medal of Honor, the highest of all awards, is the subject of this book. How the medal came into being, how the requirements have changed and how it is won by acts of valor and courage today take the reader to many places and into many harrowing scenes of combat. On the trail of Geronimo, into Manila Bay, on the Lindbergh flight and into the battlefields of World Wars and Korea -- all the highlights of American adventure and combat since the Civil War are included. A valuable and interesting piece of Americana for the masculine market.
