Military historian Dr Gavin Hughes traces the stories of seven of the men whose remarkable bravery won them the Victoria Cross, Britain's most prized military medal.

Hughes travels to France to piece together their experiences, covering four key days of the battle and telling the story of the entire offensive, using a copy of a 100-year-old battle map to navigate the Somme landscape today and pinpoint the locations of individuals and the battalions they fought in.
