Publisher Description

On the Western Front during the First World War, 490 men won the British Empire's highest award for gallantry, the Victoria Cross. An indispensible companion for any visitor to the First World War battlefields in France and Flanders, this concise reference book lists every VC recipient from 1914 to 1918 in alphabetical order. Each entry gives details of the individual's date of birth, background and education; enlistment, service history and unit; an account of how, when and where the VC was won; the date of announcement of the award in the London Gazette; other decorations; date and place of death, details of burial and commemoration; and the current whereabouts of the VC. A selection of maps is included to show the theatres of operations where VCs were won.
