VCs of the First World War 1914: 1914

Gerald Gliddon


in the course of the beginning 4 months of the 1st global battle no fewer than forty six squaddies from the British and Commonwealth armies have been offered Britain's optimum award for gallantry, the Victoria go. In a sequence of mini-biographies, Gerald Gliddon examines the lads and the dramatic occasions that resulted in the award of this so much coveted of medals. those males have been 'ordinary' squaddies from broadly differing social backgrounds, who all acted above and past the decision of responsibility. every one tale is advised chronologically and gives a clean standpoint at the commencing levels of the 'war to finish wars'.
