Meticulously researched, the book stands as the perfect tribute to those men.
The first definitive illustrated history of everyone awarded a Victoria Cross in the Great War has been created. Victoria Cross Heroes of World War One tells of the men, from soldiers, to pipers, to stretcher bearers to chaplains who were awarded the Victoria Cross.
This book would make an ideal gift to someone with an interest in the Great War. It is attractive, entertaining and substantial. I am sure the canny publishers know this all too well. If I was to be given this book in December I would be quite happy. The big plus here is the photography bringing the recipients to life. The style and quality of the archive imagery raises it to another level. Impressive.
