The Greatest Medal of Honor Stories Ever Told

Author: Tom McCarthy
Publisher: Lyons Press • Apr. 1, 2018 • 272 pages

“Conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty” – the criteria for the Medal of Honor.

In The Greatest Medal of Honor Stories Ever Told, editor Tom McCarthy has pulled together some of the finest writings about heroes awarded the highest military honor that capture reader’s imaginations. The one thing the heroes in this collection have in common—from the bloody battlefields of the Civil War through the lonely mountains of Afghanistan—is uncommon valor. Each of the men in these stories had the courage to calmly stare death in the face and move on—to do what they had to because that was their duty and the lives of others meant more to them than their own.

Chosen from hundreds of accounts of singular devotion to duty, the stories in Medal of Honor stand out for their jaw-dropping tales of bravery. They are the best. No small feat.
