5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, easy, informative and poignant.
This is an excellent book, which is easy to read, a very "dip into and out" book, and it is informative and poignant. Mr Brazier has done the brave men proud whom he has written about. He has done a first class job and I recommend it most highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive reference work
This is just what it says 'on the tin'. It is not intended for bedtime reading (though it would be compulsive browsing and would keep one awake longer than one intended) but is a reference work, pure and simple. I give talks on the history of the VC and this is the perfect ammunition to answer impossible questions from the awkward squad in the audience. So far as I can...

5.0 out of 5 stars History made interesting, 11 July 2010
This review is from: The Complete Victoria Cross: A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain's Highest Award for Gallantry (Hardcover)
I am amazed that no one else has tackled the subject of the VC in the consistent chronological order, that this work does.
I am sure that it will become the definitive text book on the subject, and a valuable source of reference to any serious historian, or any one with a passing interest in the VC.
My best book purchase this year.

So far as I can see it contains no errors - no mean feat.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE COMPLETE VICTORIA CROSS, 28 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Complete Victoria Cross: A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain's Highest Award for Gallantry (Hardcover)
I had been searching for a book that listed all of the VC holders, My daughter advised me to look on the Internet & I came across this book, it has every thing that I was looking for. It also tells you where the holders are buried, I have just found out that there are 4 buried quite close to where I live. Anyone looking for a book on VC's I recommend this one. The author has done a fantastic job.

I have always been interested in the Victoria Cross and the stories behind the recipients heroic stories. With its complete chronological record of all VC winners its an essential reference book for anyone interested in British Military History. This is an important addition to my book shelf.

This review is from: The Complete Victoria Cross: A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain's Highest Award for Gallantry (Hardcover)
Any book about Victoria Cross holders has to be rated high. It is full of information about the holders and it's great to dip into. A few minutes or hours of reading. Well written and presented. I love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Victooria Cross, 11 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Complete Victoria Cross: A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain's Highest Award for Gallantry (Hardcover)
Well worth the effort of buying this book for short histories of the men who won this medal. I did find that one citation of a man I was particularly interested in was slightly different to my own research. It will soon need updating in some way. Otherwise good.
