It has been arranged chronologically to tell the stories of the sixty-seven Victoria Cross winners serving on the Western Front in 1915. The recipients came from all walks of life and from widely differing social and racial backgrounds. Twenty of them received posthumous awards but those who survived came home to find equally varied fortunes in their post-war lives ' all of which can be traced in this book.
