Description:

This is the story of the men whose deeds of gallantry will live forever in the annals of Southern Africa's history, men such as the surgeon who, having been shot through the chest, plugged the hole with gauze and continued ministering to the needs of others. After 15 years of research the author has collected the biographic details of all the Southern African Victoria Cross heroes, not only those serving in South African or Rhodesian units, but also those South Africans who served in other Commonwealth forces and who received the supreme award for gallantry. From the massacre which spurred a South African on to win the Victoria Cross during the Indian Mutiny of 1857, to the heroic self-sacrifice of South Africa's "Pathfinder" pilot over Germany in 1945, the story surrounding every Victoria Cross award is told. In addition the campaigns in which the awards were won are described and the later lives of the recipients detailed.
