«Symbol of Courage is a ground-breaking history of Britain’s most famous medal, the Victoria Cross, and a tribute to the extraordinary men who have won it. The Victoria Cross can only be awarded for ‘most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.’ It has been awarded only 1,354 times since the Crimean War, the majority of medals going to British and Commonwealth troops. Symbol of Courage vividly brings to life the story of the medal to life.»
