Overview
-

The George Cross, the highest civilian decoration, is awarded for ‘acts of the greatest heroism or of the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger’, and all the recipients of this exceptional honor are recorded here. As a complete chronological record of George Crosses awarded in Britain and around the world, this book is an essential work of reference for anyone who is interested in the history of the medal and in the acts of bravery and self-sacrifice it commemorates.
