"During the opening four months of the war no fewer than forty-six soldiers from the British and Commonwealth armies were awarded the highest award for gallantry, the Victoria Cross. In a series of fascinating biographical portraits Gerald Gliddon here examines the dramatic events surrounding each individual action that led to the award of this most coveted of medals, as well as exploring the widely differing social backgrounds of the recipients - ranging from the back streets of Oldham to the suburbs of the Home Counties - and recounting the postwar experiences of those who survived. (A)rranged chronologically in order to provide a fresh perspective on the opening stages of the First World War."
