Unlike the Vanity Fair magazine that we find on our newsstands, the Vanity Fair published under the steady hand of it's first editor, Frank Crowninshield (1872 1947), was able to recognize that military heroes are a rare, three-dimensional breed, composed of an uncommon variety of testicular fortitude. Indeed, some years back, Israel went to the effort of giving IQ tests to the heroes of the Six Day War (1967) and they were not surprised to find that all of them tested in the higher ranges of their population. The W.W. I U.S. Army hero Crowninshield saluted on the attached page was the commanding officer of a brave group of men called "the Lost Battalion".
