10 True Tales showcases the bravery and patriotism of several WWII Medal of Honor recipients. 10 True Tales, by nonfiction writer Allan Zullo, tells ten awe-inspiring tales of Medal of Honor recipients who served during WWII. Each account narrates a different scenario highlighting the military environment, influence of religious beliefs, and the state of the country during war time. Zullo’s level of detail provides a very surreal experience as you visualize the battlefield where the heroes were fighting and whom they were fighting against. These anecdotes include a captured soldier’s experience in a Japanese POW camp and the story of the first living African-American Medal of Honor recipient. Many of the events in the book are riveting and tear jerking, like the hero who selflessly threw himself on a grenade to save his fellow brothers or the solider who fought for 18 hours straight during the raid on Pearl Harbor. Each entry tells of truly amazing feats of luck and skill experienced by those who protected America during World War II. 10 True Tales is truly inspiring and allowed me the privilege of knowing more about these brave heroes. I give this book 50 American stars and stripes. Reviewed by Zander H., age 13, Mid-America Mensa
