About this Item

189 pages, illustrated with b&w photographs. "Anthony Herbert began his military career as a private during the Korean War. By the end of that war- according to the United States Army- he was the most decorated American soldier in history. At 22, the youngest sergeant-major in the United States Army, and eventually a battalion commander who achieved a distinguished record in Vietnam. But when he reported and protested war crimes that occurred in his sector, he was relieved of his command. This book is the story of a young man's first encounter with combat. It is a record of sustained bravery in battle stretching over a thirteen-month period. And the young man emerges as America's most decorated soldier- for-valor- during the Korean conflict." FINE HARDCOVER, FINE- DUST JACKET, with a long inscription by the author. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 023587
