Awarded for one reason alone—to mark extreme acts of great heroism by British and Commonwealth servicemen in the face of the enemy—it is unquestionably the hardest club in the world to gain entrance to. Its holders—ordinary soldiers, sailors and airmen—are linked by an uncommon bond of exceptional bravery, displayed often at great personal risk and against impossible odds. The VC has been awarded only thirteen times since the end of the Second World War in 1945.

Three of these awards were made to recipients who had paid the ultimate sacrifice while demonstrating gallantry beyond the call of duty. Forged in battle, from the shell-scarred hills of Korea, to the windswept marshland of East Falkland and todays counter-insurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, each one of these VCs has a uniquely inspiring tale to tell. This is their incredible story.
