Victoria Crosses on the Western Front, 1917 to Third, 27th January 1917 – 27th July 1917


The Victoria Cross was introduced as an award to recognize truly 
exceptional courage by officers and men in the face of the enemy. 
It has becoming an award that is recognised around the world. It 
is awarded carefully and for so many to be awarded in such a short 
period is an indication of the ferocity of the fighting on the 
Western Front. The author has very carefully researched the stories 
behind the awards in what  must be the definitive account of these 
Victoria Cross recipients. Highly Recommended.
