The Victoria Cross: Australia Remembers, was published in April 2018 by Big Sky Publishing. This remarkable coffee-table book was four years in the making, with profits from the sale of the book raising money for Totally and Permanently Incapacitated Veterans.

See some moments from the launch of the book.

Through this book, Michael aimed to photograph all 100 Australian Victoria Cross medals, each of the 96 graves of these men and as many statues and monuments he could, a task which would cover 17 countries. In addition, Mr Madden aimed to interview as many family members of VC recipients as he could. He originally aimed to find 20 families but, in the end, interviewed more than 60. The Victoria Cross: Australia Remembers contains behind-the-scenes stories and images supplied by the families and, in some cases, the VC recipients themselves.
