British WWI Stories of Heroism

Records: 908 · Complete: 100%

This collection of exploits on land, sea and in the air makes a fascinating illustrated record. Here are stories recounting in graphic detail acts of gallantry or engagements at sea or in the air, each vividly pictured by artists especially commissioned to bring to life the actions described in the text. Most of them are accounts of individual gallantry, including forty Victoria Crosses and nearly one hundred Distinguished Conduct Medals as well as feats that earned the Distinguished Service Orders, Military Cross or, in the case of the Indian Army, the Indian Order of Merit. But apart from these selected cases there are hundreds more illustrations, full plate and smaller, depicting other heroic acts which are described in the captions.
