Adrian Carton de Wiart "Pre-Order & Win!"

I've got his autobiography. It is a fascinating read. While he was awarded the Victoria Cross, you wouldn't know it from reading his book. Very humble man. When he was wounded in the hand he pulled his own mangled fingers off. He was wounded so many times in WWI he had a room reserved in England in a private hospital. A true man by every definition of the word.

My only quibble was the description on the company web site that he was a Belgian aristocrat. He was educated in England and served in the British army. He was an English gentleman warrior through and through.
