Too Bold to Die: The Making of Australian War Heroes

by Ian McPhedran

From Gallipoli to East Timor to Afghanistan, many Australians have been awarded military honours for acts of selfless courage, while others have missed out. Bestselling author Ian McPhedran uncovers new stories of extreme bravery in action from WWII to today, and hears from those on the front line about what courage really means. He also explores why some become national heroes and others are overlooked.

Inspiring and unputdownable, Too Bold to Die shows what it takes to win a Medal for Gallantry – and why so many of our military heroes remain unknown.
