Honor the brave : America's wars and warriors

"At the start of a new millennium, Honor the Brave reminds us of sacrifices made, lives lost or forever changed, and the monumental bravery of the men and women who fought to make and keep America free. It tells the story of America's heroes: the soldiers, sailors, and flyers who fought at places forever etched in our history - Lexington, Gettysburg, San Juan Hill, Belleau Wood, Normandy, Iwo Jima, the 38th Parallel, the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the deserts of Kuwait. Honor the Brave follows our nation's military history and recounts the battlefront experience of America's fighting men and women. From Washington's citizen army to the soldiers in the Persian Gulf, we hear their stories in their own words and recollections."--Jacket
