Description - Our Stories: For Valour: Australia's Victoria Cross Heroes by Nicolas Brasch

Stories of heroism, courage and sacrifice.

Extraordinary courage and unbelievable nerve - that's what it takes to be awarded a Victoria Cross. Acts such as jumping into enemy trenches with just a bayonet for defence or catching enemy bombs midair and throwing them back. More than one and a half million Australians have fought in a war, yet only ninety-eight have been awarded the Victoria Cross, the Commonwealth's highest military honour for bravery. For Valour: Australia's Victoria Cross Heroes tells some of their remarkable stories.
