The Association of the U.S.Army has released a new graphic novel as part of a series highlighting Medal of Honor recipients

Medal of Honor: Daniel Inouye features the story of 2nd Lt. Daniel Inouye, who witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor and volunteered to serve in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, one of the most decorated units in World War II.

AUSA launched its Medal of Honor graphic novel series in October 2018, producing four issues and a paperback collection. Four new issues will be released this year. 

“We are especially excited about this new series of graphic novels because the stories deserve to be better known,” said Joseph Craig, director of AUSA’s Book Program. “When you mention Daniel Inouye, most people will think of him as the elder statesman. In Medal of Honor: Daniel Inouye, we get to tell the tale of his WWII actions, which could come straight out of Hollywood.”
