Item Description

This first oral history of living Medal of Honor winners evokes Flags of Our Fathers with stirring accounts of patriotic valor.

This New York Times best-selling account of battlefield courage celebrates the larger-than-life sacrifices of those awarded the nation's highest honor for valor in combat. Exclusive interviews with these twenty-four men―firsthand accounts of battlefield sacrifice from the greatest generation to Vietnam, along with before-and-after stories―form the core of this classic work. The recipients, as portrayed here, represent a cross-section as diverse as America itself―officers and enlisted men; African Americans, Hispanics, and Caucasians; men who went on to become famous (Daniel Inouye, James Stockdale, Bob Kerrey) and others who returned proudly to small towns. Beyond Glory, in the voices of these heroes, is a testament to the courage of the American nation.
