MEDAL OF HONOR Profiles of America's War Heroes From the Civil War to the Present

by | Read by Harry Chase, Jason Culp, Ron McLarty, Mike Wallace

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

Mike Wallace profiles the lives of several Medal of Honor winners from the time of its creation through the Vietnam War. The stories were researched by Allan Mikaelian but chosen by Wallace. There are a number of small factual errors that do not, overall, take away from the work. However, in his introductory and concluding comments, Wallace spends quite a bit of time discussing the Vietnam War and his legal conflict with General Westmoreland. Most of this has no real relevance to the Medal of Honor and seems self-serving. All of the stories--telling of the only woman to earn the honor, the Kentucky marksman who took out several dozen Germans in WWI, and others--show us something of what courage, self-sacrifice, and duty are made of. The performances of Wallace and the three different narrators are well done. Wallace is a skilled professional. The others perform their stories with versatility and enthusiasm. M.T.F.
