From Nathan Hale, #1 New York Times bestselling author and Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List maker, comes the definitive graphic novel about the Alamo. Hale relays the facts, politics, military actions, and prominent personalities that defined the Texas Revolution in factual yet humorous scenes that will capture the attention of reluctant readers and fans of history alike. In the early 1800s, Texas was a wild and dangerous land fought over by the Mexican government, Native Americans, and settlers from the United States. Beginning with the expeditions of the so-called "Land Pirates," through the doomed stand at the Alamo, and ending with the victory over Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto, the entire Texas saga is on display. Leading the charge to settle this new frontier is Stephen F. Austin, with a cast of dangerous and colorful characters, including Jim Bowie, William Travis, David Crockett, and others. Through his vivid depiction and additional maps, and biographies located in the back of the book, Nathan Hale brings new insight for students, teachers, and historians into one of the most iconic structures in the United States.

Throughout history, the armed forces have had help from brave creatures, from horses on cavalry charges to messenger dogs and carrier pigeons. Beyond the Call of Duty gives accounts of outstanding bravery and courage in wartime. This title looks at animals in the World Wars and how they risked their lives, without choice, to help humans in frightening and dangerous situations. Documents, images and records from The National Archives have been used to recreate each real-life act of courage. The book concludes with a look at 'research and records' giving more information about the evidence that exists for these stories today. Context panels give more information about the events of the World Wars giving explanation for why animals were taken into these frightening and dangerous situations. Where animals have been awarded PDSA Dickin Medal for gallantry for their act of bravery, the story is accompanied by a fact panel that gives details of the event and date. We discuss the idea of bravery and how it applies to animals. We look at the conscription of animals into the armed forces and recognise the fact that they had no choice. Among the brave animals in this book are: the war horses taken to the Western Front and on the home front in the Blitz. the dogs that were used as messengers, in both World Wars and those that were taught to parachute and sniff out unexploded mines. carrier pigeons that covered huge distances in time to save lives and play a vital role in the Resistance. the mules who were used in the front line and in Burma the camels that were key to the British war effort in the middle east. the elephants that helped with transport, carrying, and even building roads and bridges in the rainforest. Wojtek, the bear adopted by a Polish regiment in World War II the mascots that accompanied troops all over the world The Beyond the Call of Duty series remembers and records acts of great bravery in both World Wars. Other titles in the series look at the courage of members of the armed force and of civilians.

At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not. Naming their secret club after the fiery British leader, the young patriots in the Churchill Club committed countless acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who eventually had the boys tracked down and arrested. But their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and eventual imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance. Interweaving his own narrative with the recollections of Knud himself, here is Phil Hoose's inspiring story of these young war heroes.
