Description -

"This is a wartime book produced in full compliance with government regulations for conservation of paper and other essential materials."


The story of eighteen Medal of honor winners.  "This book is dedicated to all the GI Joes who fight the war on the ground.  The living Medal of Honor winners with whom the author talked all said: 'Remember, there are a lot of men who deserved Medals but didn't get them.  Please mention that fact in your book, will you?'. The author herewith complies.  This book is a tribute to all the unsung soldiers whose courage somehow went unnoticed."
