This is a book about brave men and brave deeds. But is courage really a virtue? Is it right to glorify violence by rewarding it? Does the Victoria Cross and all it stands for have any relevance in the world today? The answers, whether we like them or not, are important to us all. The book traces the history of the Cross from its inception to the present day, and tells the stories of some of the brave men(from all over the Commonwealth) who have won it from the Crimea to the Falklands.
