For his actions that day he became a legend in the Green Beret community and was recognized with a Medal of Honor.

Issue 1: Alvin York
On October 8, 1918, Alvin York was part of a small patrol fighting behind enemy lines during the Meuse-Argonne campaign of World War I. Suddenly a German machine gun brought down most of his platoon. York assumed command of the seven surviving Americans, took out the machine-gun nest, and captured 132 German soldiers. Corporal York was soon awarded sergeant’s stripes—and a Medal of Honor.
One hundred years later, the AUSA Book Program recognizes this remarkable act of valor with the release of Medal of Honor: Alvin York. This full-color digital graphic novel—created by a talented team drawn from the world of professional comic book publishers—shows how a reluctant hero became one of America’s most celebrated soldiers.
