Due to social and historical factors little is known of minority recipients of the Medal of Honor. This book's main purpose is to recognize and finally pay much belated honor and homage to these invisible heroes. The book's organization includes an overview and history of the Medal of Honor and individual profiles of each of the over 200 Medal of Honor recipients. Each recipient's profile consists of a photograph (if available and most were), biographical and summary of the recipient's military history, actual citation which describes the action for which the medal of Honor was given, and an epilogue which provides any available personal information about the recipient. The book is ideal for military history buffs, young adults, and current and former military personnel.
