By Gerald Gliddon

'A must for those with an interest in the history of the VC' - Soldier

During the opening four months of the First World War no fewer than forty-six soldiers from the British and Commonwealth armies were awarded the Victoria Cross, Britain's highest award for gallantry. In a series of biographies, Gerald Gliddon examines the men and the dramatic events that led to the award of this most coveted of medals and explores the post-war experiences of those who survived. These men, ordinary soldiers from widely differing social backgrounds, acted with valour above and beyond the call of duty.

Their stories and experiences offer a fresh perspective on the opening stages of the `war to end wars'.
