The Naval VCs of World War I by Stephen Snelling

Here is a complete record of almost fifty men who won the Victoria Cross while serving in the Royal Navy during the First World War. They include the conflict's youngest and oldest winners in operations ranging from the Atlantic to the coast of Africa, from the Straits of Otranto to the rivers of Mesopotamia. These awards were won in all manner of fighting ships, from disguised schooner to light cruiser, motor launch to submarine, and river steamer to battle cruiser. Following the established series style, THE NAVAL VCs charts the lives and careers of the recipients and presents graphic accounts of the VC actions based on original material, much of it from eyewitness sources.

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.
