FOR CONSPICUOUS GALLANTRY Military Cross Holders of the First World War


When introduced in 1914, the Military Cross filled a large void in medallic recognition for junior officers – the first men over-the-top when going into action. Here the author covers a diverse range of several Military Cross actions in exciting detail. Legendary characters like Albert Jacka and Siegfried Sassoon feature within, but the bravery of many lesser-known but equally gallant recipients are also explored. From dogfights in the air, hand-to-hand combat during trench raids and everything in between, For Conspicuous Gallantry tells selected (Not All) stories of individual bravery and heroism that resulted in the award of the MC.
