List of people known as war heroes

This list of notable war heroes does not make judgements about what constitutes "true" heroism, but rather acknowledges the fact that the term is normally used to designate anyone serving a miltary role in time of hostilities, who is treated as an outstanding example of honorable service by their chain of command, and especially by their comrades in arms and that portion of the populace of their state (and allied states) that identifies with the state's war aims. In particular, being free of guilt as a war criminal, or as a traitor, is in no sense implied by inclusion here.
