Join me, Robert Child, on Saturday December 16th for a free live online conference on World War II with the Friends of the National WWII Memorial based in Washington DC. 

My talk will kick off the conference at 10AM, which is moderated by New York Times bestselling author, Alex Kershaw. LINK to register for this free event.

I will be speaking about the seven black Medal of Honor recipients of World War II and my book Immortal Valor, which is available in hardcover, trade paperback and audiobook.

Immortal Valor is the remarkable story of the seven African American soldiers awarded the World War II Medal of Honor, and the 50-year campaign to deny them their recognition.

Ultimately, in 1993 a US Army commission determined that seven men, including Vernon Baker, Ruben Rivers and Charles Thomas, had been denied the Army's highest award simply due to racial discrimination. In 1997, more than 50 years after the war, President Clinton finally awarded the Medal of Honor to these seven heroes, sadly all but one of them posthumously.

I hope you'll join me Saturday Dec. 16th at 10AM for this exceptional free online event sponsored by the Friends of the National WWII Memorial. The event is moderated by Alex Kershaw. Other speakers include Danny Parker, the leading expert on the Battle of the Bulge and WWII veteran, Warren Goss who landed on D-Day at Utah beach before the first wave with the 531st Special Brigade. LINK to register for this free event.
