Canadians and the Victoria Cross in the Great WarBook - 2015
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
"For Valour" presents the lives of the Canadian recipients of the Victoria Cross in the Great War in the order the medal was awarded to them.
The series author has already written many well received books on WWI and this is a rewrite and update of a previous edition
The military details surrounding each act of heroism, and in many cases other instances of their bravery are also described. It links the recipients who were part of the same military events . In this way it throws new light on the most famous battles of WWI which had a vital Canadian contribution.
Since the series is edited by a British author it does not include much comment on the exclusion or treatment of various minority groups in Canada during and after WWI. It would have benefited from guest comments on the Truth and Reconciliation process, and the issue of "enemy aliens."
