Stories of outstanding bravery on the battlefield

About the Author:

Bryan Perrett left the army as a successful career officer to take up the pen as a full-time writer. Able to write to any brief (he was captioning picture-strips for schoolgirl comics at one point), he found his metier as a military historian and writer of good, fast, episodic, narrative popular histories. His many books, all founded on meticulous research from primary sources, find a wide popular readership. He is the bestselling author in the bestselling Cassell Military Classics series.

Review:

'Perrett gives us over thirty stories told in scholarly but gripping style which makes for dramatic reading. Wonderful stories, well told.' SLN (Scottish Legion News) Nov/Dec 2003

Book Description Orion Publishing Co, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Stories of outstanding bravery on the battlefieldThe Victoria Cross, a simple bronze cross inscribed For Valour on the front and engraved with the recipient s name, rank, number, unit and the date of the action on the reverse, was first awarded by Queen Victoria - in a ceremony in Hyde Park - in 1857, to heroes of the Crimea. The VC is the most prized British and Commonwealth decoration for gallantry, and is earned too often at the cost of the ultimate sacrifice. Only 1,354 VCs have been awarded, and this book, in Bryan Perrett s inimitable style, tells the story behind some of the most remarkable, from the Crimea through to the Second World War. Likewise, the Congressional Medal of Honor, the US equivalent decoration, is celebrated here in equal measure in his gripping episodes of outstanding gallantry in battle. The VC and the Medal of Honor have on occasion even been awarded for acts on the same battlefield. Bookseller Inventory # AA29780304366989
