LIVERPOOL VCs

By James Murphy

(Subject: Medals, Decorations (incl. Recipients) & Rolls of Honour) In Liverpool local heroes tend to be drawn from football or the music business or from the period when the city was one of Britain's greatest ports. Although it has produced many military heroes, only double VC winner Noel Chavasse has had the recognition he deserves. These biographies of twenty-three Liverpool VC winners show what extraordinary sacrifices the men of the city made. The main purpose of the book is to show these men at war, but the author also provides an insight into their civilian lives.

YORKSHIRE VCS

By Alan Whitworth

(Subject: Medals, Decorations (incl. Recipients) & Rolls of Honour) The Victoria Cross remains the supreme British award for bravery, taking precedence over all other awards and decorations. During its 160-year history since the first medals were awarded during the Crimean War in the 1850s, 1,357 have been won and no less than 69 of them have gone to Yorkshiremen. Among the roll of the brave whose gallantry and self-sacrifice are celebrated in these pages, are the names and extraordinary deeds of men who were either born or bred or lived and died in Yorkshire, the first being Bombardier Thomas Wilkinson in 1857.
