Review

'A must-have collection' -- The Times

'Oliver is a wonderful storyteller. This is a book told from the heart with both a passion and breathless awe for the deeds recounted that leaps from every page. Sumptuously illustrated, beautifully told, and in turns both moving and inspiring, it is a joy from start to finish. I defy any reader, whether they be aged nine or ninety, not to walk with a slightly straighter back after putting down these amazing tales.' -- Sunday Telegraph

Synopsis

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. Through Neil Oliver's vivid, stirring new accounts we can rediscover the stories that inspired us. These are the epics that we should all know by heart; the tales of courage, endurance and sacrifice that made men out of boys.
