How it works


398pp. Many b/w plates. Dust jacket worn at edges. Publishers white cloth boards with a gilt decoration to the front & lettering to the spine. "After fifteen years of research the author has collected the biographic details of all the Southern African V.C. heroes, not only those serving in South African or Rhodesian units, but also those South Africans who served in other Commonwealth forces and who received the supreme award for gallantry. From the massacre which spurred a South African on to win the V.C. during the Indian Mutiny of 1857, to the heroic self-sacrifice of South Africa's "Pathfinder" pilot over Germany in 1945, the story surrounding every Victoria Cross award is told. In addition the campaigns in which the awards were won are described and the later lives of the recipients detailed".
