Here is a complete chronological record of the lives, careers and exploits of all of the George Cross holders in this unique book.

Read about 14 year old Geoffrey Riley in Yorkshire who, in a violent thunderstorm in 1944, went to the rescue of 76 year old Maude Wimpenny. Heroic first aid at the Standard Motor Company, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves, gallantry in action in Malta and Dunkirk, here too are Empire gallantry medals, the Edward medal and George Crosses awarded after the Second World War.
