Audacity is the second book in the Century of Service series, and highlights the personal stories of individuals serving in Australian units who have demonstrated extraordinary boldness or courage. The book tells a wide range of stories: soldiers helping their mates, prisoners of war enduring the challenges of captivity, nurses protecting their patients, airmen defending their country and the empire, and sailors facing the dangers of mines.

This image rich publication draws on the Australian War Memorial’s diverse collection, including private records, and combines stories with interesting fact boxes, educational questions, and research activities.

Soft cover, photographs, 56 pages.

Audacity: Stories of Heroic Australians in Wartime received an honour award in the Children’s Book Council of Australia 2015 Awards, in the Eve Pownall Award for information books category.
