A first-hand account of one of America’s greatest heroes, Sergeant John Basilone, who earned the Medal of Honor for his heroic defense of Henderson airfield, Guadalcanal, turning the tide of World War II. Sgt. Basilone narrates his own story from aimless youth into clear-eyed warrior, undefeated light-heavyweight boxer and nationally revered war hero. Disdaining fame and safety, he returned to battle. He was killed at Iwo Jima defending “his boys”--the young Marines he loved. Original.
