There's no higher accolade in the U.S. military than the Medal of Honor, and 472 people received it for their action during World War II. But only one was demoted right after: Maynard Harrison "Snuffy" Smith. On a mission over France on May 1, 1943, Smith single-handedly saved the crewmen in his stricken B-17, as he fought fires, treated wounded crew, and manned the machine guns. Telling the story of a delinquent who became a hero, Joe Pappalardo creates a vivid portrait of the indomitable Smith.
