Captain Charles Hazlitt Upham is the only combat soldier ever to win the Victoria Cross twice. His acts of bravery in World War II meant he probably deserved six more.
The mystery of how a reserved, modest, slightly built farm valuer from New Zealand could be so ferocious and fearless in battle has intrigued and fascinated Tom Scott ever since he read about Charles Upham as a schoolboy. Following his best-selling memoir, Searching for Charlie is Scott's epic quest to unravel the 'real' Charles Upham. He talks with Christopher Moore about what he learned along the way.
