World War II gave rise to some of history's most gripping stories of courage and heroism.

In almost every case, ordinary men and women risked, and sometimes sacrificed, their own lives for complete strangers.

Some of the 22 stories of rescues recounted here involve 'the greatest generation' - the soldiers, sailors and airmen who put it all on the line for their brothers and sisters in arms.

Others concern civilians who hid Jews in their homes or helped Allied soldiers trapped behind enemy lines.

And there are deeply personal stories, too, such as Lucie Aubrac's audacious plan to liberate her husband from a Gestapo prison.

Common to all are the deep reserves of courage and humanity that led ordinary people to risk their lives in order to rescue those in mortal danger.

Great Rescues of World War II by Thomas J Craughwell is a 2009 first edition published by Murdoch Books, NSW, Australia.

It is a quality large-format 317-page 19.5x24cm card soft cover with fold-in flaps packed with photographs and text boxes. It is subtitled Stories of Adventure, Daring and Sacrifice.
