Hannibal's remarkable crossing of the Alps in 218 BCE with 50,000 men and 80 elephants seems almost inconceivable, but perhaps no more so than Shackleton's miraculous South Atlantic voyage in an open boat during the Antarctic expedition of 1915-1916, or the safe return of the Apollo 13 astronauts in 1970. This illustrated collection of amazing true stories compiles over 100 tales of daring, from bravery in time of war to incredible feats of survival, escape and rescue.
