Could you diffuse a bomb with only moments to act? Or save a pilot from a burning plane? Could you escape from a prisoner of war camp or act as a spy in enemy lands? That is exactly what the people in this book did!

Beyond the Call of Duty gives accounts of outstanding bravery and courage in wartime. This title looks at members of the armed forces of World War II who risked their own lives to help others in frightening and dangerous situations. Find out how these heroic individuals acted under great pressure, how people were awarded for their bravery, and more about the events of the war they were fighting in.

All these stories come from original source material held at The National Archives. Documents, images and records have been used to recreate each real-life act of courage.

Accompanying each story are context panels that give more information about the events of World War II. Where people have been awarded for their act of bravery, the story is accompanied by a fact panel that gives details of the event, date and medal that they received.
