From the co-author of the bestselling `The Dangerous Book for Boys', this is a book of heroes, new and old, known and sadly forgotten, now to be glorified as they ought to be.
From Captain Scott to Joe Simpson, from Douglas Bader to Ernest Shackleton, from Gertrude Bell to Emily Pankhurst, Conn Iggulden brings our great heroes from history back to life.
Filled with the British sense of fair play and decency that made `The Dangerous Book for Boys' so popular, `The Dangerous Book of Heroes' celebrates those who fought for what is right and good, those who made amazing discoveries, those who moved boundaries in their lifetimes.
A book of heroes written by Conn Iggulden, a man who knows what makes a hero.
Born in London, Conn Iggulden read English at London University and worked as a teacher for seven years before becoming a full-time writer. He lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and children. Conn Iggulden is the author of the number one bestselling Emperor series.
