important to Britons and recognized around the world as the highest honour to 
soldiers, sailors and airmen – Highly Recommended.

The publisher is not only a prolific publisher of military history titles, but committed to providing, where appropriate, a very local context for a new book. In this case, almost 100 recipients of the VC are Yorkshiremen. It covers the exploits and lives of this selection of what is already a limited brotherhood. It will be appreciated by those with Yorkshire roots or connections, but it is also a fascinating cross section of military courage by recipients from all British military organizations and across the wars and campaigns since the award was introduced.

The book has much charm in viewing 160 years of awards of the VC across all of the Services and all of the conflicts through the lens of Yorkshire.
