The Victoria Cross – an ANZAC must have book

Tomorrow marks an important day in Australia. It’s ANZAC Day. Stories and memories will fill the day along with celebration to commemorate the hard work hundreds of people did to put there lives on the line to protect us during the war.

Since the landing at ANZAC cove all those years ago, wars have come and gone. Many men and women have lost their lives in the line of duty and many have been celebrated for their work.

The Victoria Cross, Australia Remembers by Michael Madden, is a book filled with the 100 recipients of the Victoria Cross medal, the highest military honor.

It is a book like no other, nothing has been written about the people that have sacrificed their lives, family and friends to go to war, to protect us, all in the name of duty.

With stories of how and why these 100 remarkable people were bestowed this medal, aswell as its effect on them and their family and life after the war, The Victoria Cross is a book full of life, death and what makes Australia Australia.
