For Valour: Australia's Victoria Cross heroes

Nicolas Brasch

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 1,500,000 Australians have fought in war, while only 99 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.
