    Description
    Charles Upham was the great New Zealand war hero. He was one of the few people in history to have won the Victoria Cross twice, setting new standards of personal heroism during World War II. A quietly spoken sheep farmer back home in Canterbury, at the front in Crete and North Africa he destroyed enemy machinegun posts single-handed and led a frontal assault on enemy guns. His exploits and individual heroism are the stuff of Kiwi legend. He then spent the rest of the war in prisoner-of-war camps, including the famous Colditz Castle, where he made life a misery for the German guards, constantly trying to escape.
    This bestselling book was first published by Hutchinson in Britain in 1962 and reprinted many times. It has become a classic.

    In a new Afterword written for this edition, Bruce Wallace, author of 'Battle Of The Titans', describes Upham's life following the war until his death in 1994.
