The history of Southern Africa's Victoria Cross heroes.This is the story of the men whose deeds of gallantry will live forever in the annals of Southern Africa's history men such as the surgeon who, having been shot through the chest, plugged the hole with gauze and continued ministering to the needs of others.

From the massacre which spurred a South African on to win the V.C. during the Indian Mutiny of 1857, to the heroic selfsacrifice of South Africa's "Pathfinder" pilot over Germany in 1945, the story surrounding every Victoria Cross award is told.
