VCs of the First World War
The Road to Victory 1918eBook - 2014
By August 1918, fortune was on the side of the Allies: America was increasing its contribution of troops and equipment substantially; the morale of the German Army was sinking as it failed to deliver the desired "knock out blow;" and Haig found a new confidence, firmly believing that the Allies could at last push the Germans out of France and Belgium. This volume of the best-selling VCs of the First World War series covers the fifty days of the Allied advance from August 8 to September 26, 1918. Arranged chronologically, it tells the story of the 64 VC winners during this period. The recipients came from many countries, including Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand: some never lived to know that they had been awarded for their extraordinary bravery, while others returned home to face an uncertain future. This is their story.
