"American Artillery and the Medal of Honor" is not the story of a single service or a particular branch of service.

Rather, it is the story of an American fighting arm and the men who won the Medal of Honor serving that arm.

It is the story of the land-based Artillery of the United States (Field, Coastal, and Air Defense) and the men involved with the delivery of fires from large caliber, crew-served weapons designed primarily for indirect fire.

The story deals mostly with Soldiers and Marines, but it also includes some Sailors.

It is a story that constantly reminds us of the Napoleonic dictum: God fights on the side with the best Artillery.
