Synopsis: Published for the first time in a single volume, VCs of the Second World War consolidates the accounts of the actions of every recipient. The medal of this ultimate honour is inscribed with the simple words 'For Valour', and this cross of courage was awarded to a total of 180 men - many posthumously. As these stories of bravery unfold, they reveal varied exploits of incredible individual actions. And they frequently form part of larger-scale operations, whether on land, in the air, at sea or under the sea. In so doing, the book becomes a unique chronological cross-section of the crucial British and Commonwealth contribution to the war as a whole.
