Wartime Courage : Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Exceptional Men and Women in World War Two Paperback
by Gordon Brown
In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown marks the unforgettable heroism of British men and women who fought to overcome tyranny.
Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle while others are of innovative, strategic thought and endurance in the face of dangers met day after day.
Tribute is paid to heroes such as John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, and to the bravery of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in France.
Simply and directly told, these inspiring stories celebrate the extraordinary courage of an exceptional generation.
