Only one man was twice awarded the Victoria Cross in World War I - Captain Noel Godfrey Chavasse, who served in the Royal Army Medical Corps as Medical Officer to the 10th Battalion, the King's (Liverpool Regiment) - the Liverpool Scottish. This book is based on a a combination of his letters from the Front, family correspondence, photographs and other documents. It offers a study of a man who, while typical in so many ways of the Victorian/Edwardian middle class from whence he came, stands out for his simple courage and devotion to duty. The narrative follows Noel Chavasse from his birth, with a twin brother, in 1884, to his education and maturity in Oxford and Liverpool. While Noel grew up and qualified as a doctor, his father became Bishop of Liverpool and embarked on the building of the largest and last 20th-century cathedral in the Anglican world.
