Heroic profiles

Each of these individuals or groups can be studied to learn about varieties of courage and heroism. If you have additional links for these case studies you would like to recommend, send me a message at the feedback to author page. If you would like to nominate additional individuals for study, send me a brief description and website links for review. Some examples of heroism result in the death of the actor. Including individuals who died as heroes gives tribute to their sacrifice and helps reinforce the real risk of some forms of heroism. Please contact me if any of these links no longer work.
