Of all the decorations a combatant in the Commonwealth can receive, none is more prestigious than the Victoria Cross. This book tells the inspiring stories of the 16 Canadians who received the Victoria Cross during World War II. These men came from all walks of life and from various ranks within the Canadian Forces, but they all had one thing in common: each displayed exceptional bravery and self-sacrifice in the face of danger. Their deeds were recognized with the highest decoration "For Valour."
“Above all, these 16 Victoria Cross winners remain as symbols of the indomitable Canadian spirit in times of trouble.” – from Tom Douglas' "Great Canadian War Heroes"
