For Valour: Australia's Victoria Cross Heroes
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 war, while 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. Ties in to the Australian school curriculum at year 5/6 level. Suitable for young readers 8+ years.
Soft cover, photographs, 32 pages.
