By Glyn Harper and Colin Richardson

For 150 years the highest Commonwealth military decoration for gallantry has been the Victoria Cross. These are the extraordinary stories of the New Zealand VCs.

Since its instigation in 1856 more than 40 Victoria Crosses have been awarded with strong New Zealand associations to men whose courage in the face of the enemy was recognised by their comrades.

IN THE FACE OF THE ENEMY tells the story of each one, from the New Zealand Wars to the Second World War. Many more were nominated for a VC than ever received it, with some of those famously declined - Malone of Chunuk Bair, Manahi, Perkins and Stott - igniting controversy that continues today. The events, politics, philosophies of this exclusive award are examined by two leading military historians - each story powerful and unique, with compelling accounts of the battles that made our nation and forged our history.

Informative, exciting and provocative, IN THE FACE OF THE ENEMY presents a riveting insight into our military history - and the heroes who walked amongst us.
