- A multimedia DVD rich in historical footage and first-person reflections of these ultimate acts of courage
- Full coverage of 22 additional Medal recipients by National Book Award nominee Peter Collier
- Heart-rending new portraits by award-winning photographer Nick Del Calzo
- Introductory essay by Victor Davis Hanson, military history scholar and author of A War Like No Other, The Western Way of War, and The Soul of Battle
