Tales of brave and selfless deeds used to be part of every boy's education. We grew up sharing stories with our fathers, uncles, and grandfathers of how other men had lived their lives, met their challenges, reached their goals, and faced their deaths.
Becoming a man was about comradeship and standing by your friends whatever the circumstances. And it meant that sometimes it was more important to die a hero than live a coward's life.
Amazing Tales is packed with vivid new accounts of classic stories of courage and heroism, including 'The Battle of Britain', 'The Charge of the Light Brigade', 'The Siege of Dien Bien Phu', 'The Cockleshell Heroes', 'The Battle of Isandlwana', 'The Penlee Lifeboat Disaster', 'Apollo XIII', 'The SAS and the Battle of Mirbat', 'The Yangtse Incident', 'The Battle of Trafalgar', 'Shackleton's Boat Journey', 'Scott of the Antarctic', and many more.
