The Medal of Honour is the United States’ highest award for valour in action and, since it was first introduced during the American Civil War, 3,456 have been awarded to members of its armed forces. This is the first of two books looking at the stories of all those who received the medal throughout World War II, and covers the Navy and Marine Corps, who were awarded a total of 139 in all actions, from the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941 to the brutal fighting on Iwo Jima in 1945.
