An Incredible Soldier Somehow Won 2 Victoria Crosses in WW2

Charles Hazlitt Upham was fighting in the North African front during World War 2 when he started throwing hand grenades at the enemy, destroying a truck filled with German soldiers and even a tank.


The soldier received bullets to an elbow and foot and was gravely injured, but disregarded his pain and went back to get his comrades under fire.


Upham had already proved himself with a similar feat when he fought on the Island of Crete in Greece, and not even being captured could stop his daring exploits or his selfless pursuit to help those around him, achieving legendary status as a prisoner of war who could not be held captive.


Award-winning columnist Tom Scott would suggest years later that the two Victoria Crosses Upham received weren’t enough… he should have gotten 8!
