This is an auction for MARK OF THE LION: THE STORY OF CHARLES UPHAM VC AND BAR by Kenneth Sandford.

"Charles Upham was the great New Zealand war hero. He was one of the few people in history to have won the Victoria Cross twice, setting new standards of personal heroism during World War II. A quietly spoken sheep farmer from Canterbury, at the front in Crete and North Africa, he destroyed enemy machine-gun posts single-handed and led a frontal assault on enemy guns. He then spent the rest of the war in prisoner-of-war camps, including the famous Colditz Castle, where he made life a misery for the German guards, constantly trying to escape."

Hardback 1962.

287 pages + photographs.

The dust jacket is damaged and there is a name on the flyleaf.

Otherwise, good condition.
