Overview

Most young Americans today know virtually nothing of the heroes of our not-so-distant past, and much of what they think they know is wrong. These heroes have largely been censored from our textbooks and culture. 'Real Men' is all about them. I read about them, heard about them, saw movies about them while growing up, R. Cort Kirkwood writes. They all were part of an American boy's life. They inspired us, and we aspired to be like them. Ten of those men are memorialized in this book: Francis Marion, Eddie Rickenbacker, Vince Lombardi, Rocky Versace, Wild Bill Hickok, Lou Gehrig, Audie Murphy, Andrew Jackson, David Crockett, and Robert E. Lee.
