Above and beyond: The Aviation Medals of Honorby Barrett Tillman
From 1918 to 1972 over one hundred American aviators (pilots and crew) from all military services received the United States' highest military decoration for "distinguishing themselves by conspicuous gallantry and courage at risk of their own lives, above and beyond the call of duty." Through a combination of interviews with the surviving fliers and in-depth research, Barrett Tillman presents the incredibly valiant and inspiring stories behind the medals and in many cases sets the "official record" straight.
