Summary
This book is not a traditional history book; it takes a different approach to recognising these remarkable Australians. Through 100 individual profiles of each Australian VC recipient, this book has been written as a way for families and friends to give their perspective on the men they knew, how the Victoria Cross has affected them and how families coped after the fighting had ended. The profiles reveal just how much these men came from every walk of life and the rich colour of the families and communities they came from. The author, supported by volunteers from the Totally & Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen & Women's Association of Victoria Inc. (TPI Victoria), has travelled across Australia and around the world to interview families, peers and friends about these 100 remarkable Australians
