Extraordinary first-hand accounts from Victoria Cross winners. The Victoria Cross is one of the worlds most famous medals. It was introduced by Queen Victoria in 1856 for most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy, and has been awarded only 1,358 times.

Some testimonies come from soldiers, sailors and airmen who were awarded the VC others come from those who witnessed extraordinary acts for which the medal was won.

Forgotten Voices of the Victoria Cross explores the very nature of bravery by those whose job it was to be brave. It is a landmark addition to the Forgotten Voices series.
