This book is an ambitious endeavour to capture the history of Australia’s pre-eminent award for acts of bravery in the face of the enemy and its highest military honour, the Victoria Cross (VC).

Since 1856 when the award was created by Queen Victoria, 100 Australian servicemen have been recognised with the Cross. This book, however, is not a traditional history book; it takes a different approach to recognising these remarkable Australians. Through 100 individual profiles of each Australian VC recipient, this book has been written as a way for families and friends to give their perspective on the men they knew, how the Victoria Cross has affected them and how families coped after the fighting had ended.

The profiles reveal just how much these men came from every walk of life and the rich colour of the families and communities they came from. The author, supported by volunteers from the Totally & Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen & Women’s Association of Victoria Inc. (TPI Victoria), has travelled across Australia and around the world to interview families, peers and friends about these 100 remarkable Australians.

All these strands have been brought together to tell the story of the creation of the Victoria Cross, how it has evolved to find its place in modern Australia, and to illuminate the lives of these Australians with an incredible array of photographs taken on these travels, but also from official sources and the families.

Pete Evans

Pete Evans is an award-winning chef, restaurateur, author, TV presenter, health coach, adventure seeker and father. Born in Melbourne and raised on the Gold Coast, Pete Evans is one of Australia's leading authorities on healthy cooking and lifestyle.

Pete began his career as a chef and restaurateur at the age of 19, opening numerous restaurants, including the award-winning Hugo's, as well as cooking in some of the finest restaurants globally. Since then, Pete's career has moved from the kitchen into the lounge room, with many TV appearances including on Lifestyle Channel's Postcards from Home, FISH and Moveable Feast. Pete is currently co-host of Channel 7's hugely successful show My Kitchen Rules and the host of his own series The Paleo Way. He is also executive producer of the documentary The Magic Pill.

Despite his fast-paced career, Pete is a simple guy at heart. He loves his family, the ocean, surfing and maintaining his own healthy lifestyle. When he switched to a paleo way of living, an abundance of mental, physical, and emotional changes followed. This paved the way for Pete's belief that food can be medicine, and that it should be our first port of call for a healthier life.

As a certified health coach, Pete is dedicated to improving people's lives through education about nutritional food and wellness, and wants to help change the lives of everyone around him, including you!

    Not a favourite. The meat muffins are not kid friendly and whilst I know Pete Evans children are older, but I wonder how many kids are really going to sit down and eat with a fork for items are that quite greasy.
