Pearl Harbor. Normandy. Iwo Jima. The “Frozen Chosin” in Korea. Wherever the fiercest battles were fought, Hoosiers helped fight them. “Faces of War” captures the full sweep, from the call to duty, to the grisliest combat, to returning home to starkly different welcomes. The 21 subjects include Medal of Honor recipient Sammy Davis, former Indiana Governor Edgar Whitcomb, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, a survivor of the USS Indianapolis, a Tuskegee Airman and a Women’s Airforce Service Pilot.
