Show Me a Hero The Sin of Richard Byrd Jnr.
By Jeremy Scott
This is the story of an honourable and courageous man who made a pact with the Devil. By telling one momentous lie he became world-famous, an all-American hero, awarded the highest distinction his President could bestow on him. Fame has always been alluring, but today it is so sought after that it is, for many, the prime ambition in life. And not just for the young – few of us are immune to fame’s enchantment. But how far are you prepared to go to get it? Who will you cheat? Who will you betray?
In that Devil’s contra Richard Byrd obtained the fame he so craved – a whole lifetime of celebrity. The cost to others proved fatal; the price he paid himself no less than his own soul.
