It is impossible to overstate the importance of the Civilian Conservation Corps to Pennsylvania's state parks and forests. Many of them would not exist without the tireless work of the CCC Boys. The devastation of the Great Depression taught the Boys the value of hard work, instilling in them the quality of character they would need as many of them then went on to fight in World War II. This exhaustive study by historian and retired professor Michael Schultz profiles the 40 CCC members from across the United States who went on to become winners of the Congressional Medal of Honor. This book is a fascinating tribute to the bravest of the brave. (Books on order from Dr. Schultz; there may be a short delay in filling your order!)
