The two World Wars of the 20th Century touched every part of society from the ordinary working person to stars of stage and screen. And the young men who played football for Celtic FC were not immune to the dangers of war. Celtic War Heroes now tells their story and describes the bravery and sacrifice of the boys who went to war. There's the story of Willie Angus, who volunteered to serve his country in 1914 with his friend James Martin and would later heroically save his life in the midst of bitter trench warfare. His actions earned him the Victoria Cross and a lasting place in the heart of Celtic Football Club. Then there was James Stokes from the Gorbals in Glasgow, who won a posthumous VC in the Second World War in 1945 for an act of extraordinary and conspicuous bravery which cost him his life. And there are numerous other stories of valour and service which show the part played by the men of Celtic FC. Celtic War Heroes tells the remarkable story of the brave Celtic men who fought for their country, many of whom did not return home.
