Comments: The predictions of the war 'being over by Christmas' turned out to be far from the truth.  By January 1915 the British Expeditionary Force found themselves trapped in the murderous stalemate of trench warfare.  British troops had suffered badly in the early campaigns and by January 1915 were holding some 30 miles of trench.
 
The year 1915 was to witness some of the bloodiest and bitter battles of the Great War, including the first blooding at Neuve Chapelle, the Second Battle of Ypres and the appaling failure of Loos.  By the end of the summer almost 50,000 men of Kitchener's Army had been killed.
 
This book tells the story of the 67 VC winners from this period on the Western Front.  Each of their stories are different and 20 medals were awarded posthumously. However, they all have one thing in common - acts of extraordinary bravery under fire.
