The collected stories of the Canadian recipients of the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration. As Canada came into its own as a nation during the First World War, proving itself capable of standing alongside Britain on the world stage, scores of Canadians were awarded the Commonwealth's highest award for pre-eminent acts of valour, self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty, the Victoria Cross. For Valour details every Canadian VC recipient from the First World War. These men, ordinary servicemen from widely differing social backgrounds, acted with valour above and beyond the call of duty. Their stories and experiences offer a fresh perspective on the "war to end all wars." Series editor Gerald Gliddon and contributors Stephen Snelling, and Peter F. Batchelor, examine the men and the dramatic events that led to the granting of this most prized of medals. Each of the men's stories is different, but they all have one thing in common - acts of extraordinary bravery under fire.
