Stories of heroism, exploration and sacrifice that will inspire
boys to be courageous, honorable and open to adventure
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 great 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 for Making Men Out of Boys" is packed with
classic stories of courage and heroism from around the world,
including: D-Day and Omaha Beach; the Charge of the Light Brigade;
the Battle of Dien Bien Phu; the Siege of the Alamo; the
Moonwalkers and "Apollo 13"; the Flight of the Nez Perces; Josiah
Harlan and the Trouble with Afghanistan; the Demons of Camerone;
the Battle of Isandlwana; the Yangtze Incident; the Battle of
Trafalgar; Shackleton's Boat Journey; Scott of the Antarctic;
Thermopylae; the Revolutionary War Naval Battle of John Paul Jones
and the "Bonhomme Richard."
