THE GREAT REDAN AT SEBASTOPOL: The Most Victoria Crosses Awarded for a Single Action
On 18 June 1855, British assault troops moved out of their trenches and attacked Sevastopol's formidable Russian bastion known as the Great Redan. They came under such a murderous fire from the Russian defenders that the attack faltered, and the British were eventually forced to fall back, leaving over 1,000 comrades dead and dying. The British awarded 20 Victoria Crosses during this engagement during the Crimean War.
Includes biographical tributes to many of the men who were killed in action, gives details of the places where they are commemorated, and provides biographies with all the up-to-date information concerning the VC recipients.
