During the opening four months of the First World War no fewer than forty-six soldiers from the British and Commonwealth armies were awarded the Victoria Cross, Britain's highest award for gallantry. In a series of biographies, Gerald Gliddon examines the men and the dramatic events that led to the award of this most coveted of medals and explores the post-war experiences of those who survived. These men, ordinary soldiers from widely differing social backgrounds, acted with valour above and beyond the call of duty. Their stories and experiences offer a fresh perspective on the opening stages of the `war to end wars'. GERALD GLIDDON is a notable historian, author and bookseller specialising in military history. He has written a number of books about the First World War and has coordinated this series. His many titles include Somme 1916: A Battlefield Guide (The History Press). He lives in Norfolk.
