There are a raft of titles that crop up again and again in this list. Some of these suggestions have already been commissioned. We are desperately searching for authors and illustrators for some of the other subjects. But I can help you with two of the most requested subjects on the website.
Many of you have pointed out how we have Elite titles on the Medal of Honor, and the Knight's Cross. In fact we have four books on the Knight's Cross (ELI 114 Knights Cross and Oak-Leaves Recipients 1939-40, Elite 123 Knights Cross and Oak-Leaves Recipients 1941-45, Elite 133 Knights Cross and Oak-Leaves and Swords Recipients 1941-45 and Elite 139 Knights Cross with Diamonds Recipients) and two medal of honor books (Elite 92 World War II Medal of Honor Recipients (1) and Elite 95 World War II Medal of Honor Recipients (2)).

If you are a Silver or Gold member you can also utilize your discounts on the Shire site.
The book on the Victoria Cross discusses the history behind the award - as well as listing the recipients and citations for those who won the award.
