On pages 28 and 29 of Issue 81 (December 2017), we have an article written by Lord Ashcroft, in which he tells us why he has created the World’s largest collection of Victoria Cross medals and why he believes “that inspirational deeds of valour and self-sacrifice should be championed and never forgotten” – a sentiment that the entire team at Airsoft Action recognise and applaud.
Lord Ashcroft is also an accomplished author and his new book, Victoria Cross Heroes II is a collection of 60 stories of outstanding “gallantry in the face of the enemy” that lead to those involved being awarded the Victoria Cross.
Amongst those whose stories are recounted is Captain Noel Godfrey Chavasse, one of only three people who have won the Victoria Cross twice and the only soldier to have been awarded the VC and Bar during the Great War.
Lord Ashcroft has kindly agreed to provide a signed copy of the book to give away to one lucky Airsoft Action reader in this competition.
