Heroes, Rogues & Vagabonds : Irish Vcs in the Crimean War (Paperback) (David Truesdale)
About this item
Those men awarded the Victoria Cross during the Crimean War served in the artillery, infantry, cavalry and Royal Navy. Not only was the first ever VC recipient an Irishman, so was the first soldier to be so awarded, as was, in many cases the first in many infantry regiments. An Irish VC winner can be found in all major engagements, including the Charge of the Light Brigade and when it came to tossing a live shell out of a trench, the Irish almost made it an Olympic sport.
