American Artillery and the Medal of Honor
Lulu.com, Aug 27, 2008 - 328 pages
A massive work, which includes a brief history of the Medal of Honor (MOH) including evolution of American military awards, brevets, Certificate of Merit, Congressional Medals, Roll of Honor, Pyramid of Honor, 1916 Review Board, double winners, Acts of Congress, and more. Each major war/campaign in which an artilleryman won MOH is covered: Civil War, Indian Wars, Philippine Insurrection, Vera Cruz, World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam. Each section contains a brief overview of artillery MOH recipients, followed by detailed info for each individual winner. Appendices detail how the author came to his conclusions and how previous sources on the subject have not been as complete as they should have been in crediting many recipients with "artilleryman" status. There are 23 detailed tables which present facts and figures to put the MOH story into perspective, especially as it relates to artillerymen. Much of this data has never been available in any other published source. 89 photos.
