This is the portrait book that chronicles the living recipients of the highest military decoration for valor--the Medal of Honor. Celebrating 150 years of the medal awarded to soldiers who demonstrate "intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty," the book devotes an entire two-page spread to each honoree, complete with a current, full page portrait, his original armed forces picture, and details of his heroic gallantry. The text explains each soldier's motivation for entering the Armed Forces and the path their lives took after their service. Essays written by Tom Brokaw and John McCain capture the courage and character that is symbolized by the Medal of Honor and the included DVD provides first-person accounts of the valiant honorees. 275 black-and-white photographs; 336 pages.

Although I purchased this item at a discounted price, it is well-worth the regular price tag. I haven't watched the DVD yet, but I've read some of the book, which gives insight into the heroism of these young men. Anyone who is a lover of military history will appreciate this book.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
