4.0 out of 5 stars You owe it to them to read their VC stories
Really interesting and enjoyable to read. A honourable tribute to brave men, who most of which paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Sometimes you can lose your way with the battleground layout, terrain and tactics, but the book captures the reasons for VC award, and annotates the actual citation. Recommended.

This review is from: VC Heroes - The True Stories Behind Every VC Winner Since World War Two (Kindle Edition)
Very well written accounts of the bravery of commonwealth troops who have won the Victoria cross since WW 2 . The author not only gives us the reasons behind the awards but also the background stories of these very special soldiers lives before,including and after winning the VC. This is so much better than any military fiction.

I think that this is one the best true stories that i have read. It just goes to show that we should be so proud we should be of our armed forces. I would recomend this book to anyone who believes in our armed forces.

This review is from: VC Heroes - The True Stories Behind Every VC Winner Since World War Two (Kindle Edition)
Not alot else you can say when you consider the subject matter. It can get a bit confusing in its landscape discriptions and military details but the actions of these individual men whether you agree with the causes/places they were fighting in or not is nothing short of inspiring

This review is from: VC Heroes - The True Stories Behind Every VC Winner Since World War Two (Kindle Edition)
There is no story behind these events, except one of unconscious bravery. Some might say foolhardy-ness, but that is what
heroes are made of. The book itself is like all tales of valour, it is useful for reference purposes.

This review is from: VC Heroes - The True Stories Behind Every VC Winner Since World War Two (Kindle Edition)
I am a royalist and in the past served served my queen and Country for some thirty two years.
I like books of fact rather than fiction, and have served in the same area as one of the VCs, whilst he himself was there.
