In the Face of the Enemy
By Glyn Harper & Colin Richardson

The complete history of the Victoria Cross and New Zealand

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 gasses 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 Scott - igniting controversy that continues today. The events, politics and philosophies of this exclusive award are examined by two lead 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 walk amongst us.
