In this commemorative year, a new book has been published which offers a definitive illustrated history of those who were awarded Britain’s
highest military accolade for valour during the Great War.
Victoria Cross Heroes of World War One, by Robert Hamilton, tells the inspiring, moving and humbling stories of all 627 VC

This is a fantastic book – prepare for many of the stories to bring a tear to your eye. It has something for everyone from the history
buff to those who just love a good read.
