Victoria Cross Bibliography, 2nd edition by John Mulholland and Alan Jordan
John Mulholland & Alan Jordan
With Foreword by Lord Ashcroft
Many books have been written about the Victoria Cross and its recipients. The
first published work on the subject appeared in 1857 – the same year as the
first VC investiture.
John Mulholland and Alan Jordan’s first comprehensive bibliography of the
Victoria Cross appeared in 1999, representing the efforts of a team of
researchers in the UK, Canada and Australia. This second edition completely
updates their research, increasing the number of books listed, annotated and
cross-referenced from 640 to around 1,400, and including all the Journals of
the Victoria Cross Society.
The bibliography is an important contribution to Victoria Cross
literature and an essential, up-to-date reference guide for anyone with an
interest in the decoration.
‘A wonderful asset for anyone who wants to take a serious look at the
VC.’ Lord Ashcroft

The Victoria Cross Bibliography 2nd ediition is the perfect reference book for anyone who is an enthusiast on the subject of the Victoria Cross. It details all the books which are available on the subject but also gives a short synopsis of the titles and their publishing details which have all been superbly chronicled and compiled by the two authors. The book fully updates the previous edition published in 1999, and even includes titles of books which have not been published yet. Highly recommend.

"For anyone with a deep interest in all aspects of the story of the Victoria Cross, this new edition of the Victoria Cross Biography by authors John Mulholland and Alan Jordan is truly a delight. Every section, from the Explanatory Notes through to the Index, is superbly portrayed with close attention paid to both layout and detail, and the book is beautifully illustrated with colour images of well over one-hundred books, including many of the very rare early publications."
David Knight, former archivist Stonyhurst College and editor of the Stonyhurst Record
"There is no doubt that the Victoria Cross Bibliography is a key work of reference that is an essential 'must have' for anyone researching the subject. It is a high-quality production, as is to be expected from Spink, and will be an adornment to any library."
