For Valour: The Complete History of the Victoria Cross is the first definitive reference on every winner of the Victoria Cross, the highest award in the British military honor system, awarded for gallantry in the face of the enemy.  This is the first of eight volumes to be published in association with the Victoria Cross Trust.
 
Each volume is divided into two parts. Part one, “Wars, Battles & Deeds,” contains descriptions of each war and battle or engagement that involved deeds resulting in the awarding of a Victoria Cross. The deeds are described within the context of the war and battle during which they occurred. Part two, “Portraits of Valour,” presents a biography of each recipient of the Victoria Cross. This volume also includes a foreword by Lord Ashcroft, who owns the largest collection of Victoria Crosses.
