A complete record of the Recipients of the Victoria Cross from its inception to 1920, with descriptions of the deeds and many biographical details. This remarkable work has been compiled from official publications - including "The London Gazette" - and despatches, letters from commanding officers and other contemporary accounts, and from information from private sources. In a number of cases biographical details are extensive. As regards the Great War there have been a number of more recent publications covering that period, but there is nothing to compare with this book as a record for the first fifty-eight years of the Victoria Cross and his work on the 1914-1918 awards is a widely used source for later publications. This book is a must for any serious medallist and for anyone with an interest in the story of highest award for gallantry. There is an index of names. Reprint of the 1920 original edition.
