Summary

Summary

From 1918 to 1972 over 100 American aviators received the United States' highest military decoration. Through a combination of interviews with the surviving fliers and in-depth research, Tillman presents the incredibly valiant and inspiring stories behind the medals and in many cases sets the "official record" straight.
