Synopsis: The George Cross, the highest civilian decoration, is awarded for 'acts of the greatest heroism or of the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger', and all the recipients of this exceptional honor are recorded here. As a complete chronological record of George Crosses awarded in Britain and around the world, this book is an essential work of reference for anyone who is interested in the history of the medal and in the acts of bravery and self-sacrifice it commemorates.

Review: For anthology of the acts of bravery, it would be difficult to find any better than The Complete George Cross (Pen & Sword: GBP25) by Kevin Brazier, who has already completed a study on recipients of the Victoria Cross - This book offers readers amazing details about how people are willing to risk and save others. - The Dover Express, Folkstone Herald, Deal and Sandwich Express

As a complete chronological record of George Crosses awarded in Britain and around the world, this book is an essential work of reference for anyone who is interested in the history of the medal and in the acts of bravery and self-sacrifice it commemorates.The first direct awards of the George Cross were made during the Second World War when Britain was threatened with invasion and civilians were in the front line of the fighting, and it has been awarded to individuals who have distinguishedthemselves in equally perilous situations ever since. Their extraordinary exploits, as recounted in this book, make unforgettable reading.Each entry gives the name of the George Cross holder and the date and location of the incident for which the medal was awarded. There is a graphic description of what happened and of the medal-recipient's conduct. Information is also provided on the background of the George Cross recipients, the location of their medals and their place of burial.This remarkable reference book should appeal to anyone who is interested in the history of British medals, and in acts of heroism.
