Volumes VI & VII of "United States Navy Heroes" is an INCOMPLETE but COMPREHENSIVE collection of Silver Star awards to members of the U.S. Navy during World War II. An estimated 5,000 Silver Stars were awarded to members of the Navy in World War II, and 4,241 (85%) of these awards are identified in these two volumes, which includes the full text of more than 2,700 citations and detailed synopsis containing rank, unit and date of action for most of the remainder. Volume VII includes several appendixes with tables analyzing these awards by such criteria as rank/rating, specialty (Corpsman, PT Boats, Submarines, etc.), by unit/ship, and more. It also includes a listing of most of these recipients by home state and town.
