Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR COURAGE: 'His approach is refreshing ... readable and intelligent' Sunday Times 'The book tells us as much about Brown's own personal journey as it does about the courage of those he describes ... very moving' Guardian 'Extremely well-written: aphoristic, evocative and, most surprisingly of all, pacy ... a page-turner. Trust me: this is a fine book' Spectator

Format: Paperback
An accessible and fascinating book that presents the stories of a handful of brave people during World War Two. By covering a wide range of people, from some of the earliest naval commandoes to a teacher sheltering Jews in occupied Hungary, it's a reminder of the many facets of this conflict and of human courage, and provides a glimpse into some of the more obscure parts of the war.

My husband really enjoyed the book, he was put off initially when he realised the author and politician are the same person! He read it in a couple of days.
