[minor shelfwear, slight bumping to base of spine, spine a little turned; jacket shows some wrinkling at top of spine and along bottom edge of front panel, light soiling]. (B&W drawings) The stories of the heroism displayed by nine winners of the Congressional Medal of Honor, chosen from the ninety awarded to American servicemen during World War I. (There are actually eleven named individuals discussed, since one of the Medals was awarded jointly to three men.) The book's Foreword incorporates a complete list of all ninety of the WWI Medal winners, among them William J. Donovan ("Wild Bill," of later OSS/CIA fame) and Alvin C. York -- neither of whom are among the nine whose stories are told here in detail. The jacket design is by Rockwell Kent.
