Heroes of Postman's Park : Heroic Self-Sacrifice in Victorian London, Paperback / softback Book

Heroes of Postman's Park : Heroic Self-Sacrifice in Victorian London Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Watts Memorial to Heroic Self-Sacrifice in Postman's Park, London, is a Victorian monument containing fifty-four ceramic plaques commemorating sixty-two individuals, each of whom lost their own life while attempting to save another.

Every plaque tells a tragic and moving story, but the short narratives do little more than whet the appetite and stimulate the imagination about the lives and deaths of these brave characters.

Based upon extensive historical research, this book will, for the first time, provide a full and engaging account of the dramatic circumstances behind each of the incidents, and reveal the vibrant and colourful lives led by those who tragically died.
