The Hero Inside is the officially authorised fund-raising book for Help for Heroes, the charity founded in 2007 to support servicemen and women wounded in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Conceived and photographed by Gill Shaw, this inspirational book is a thought-provoking and, at times, emotional record of the experiences and traumas both on the battlefield and at home and is a tribute to our Armed Forces and those who support them on their return.
Leading celebrity supporters of Help for Heroes feature in The Hero Inside and include Joanna Lumley, Boris Johnson, Sir Chris Hoy, Michael Portillo, Stephen Fry and James May.

'This superb book is a celebration of the heroism and bravery shown by the servicemen and women of the British Armed Forces. The photographs on every page are wonderful, conveying genuine warmth and affection for our Armed Forces and for the charity. Anyone buying this book will be donating for Help for Heroes, but more importantly will be left feeling rightly proud of all those who put service for their country above all else.' Shooting Gazette
'This is a wonderful and inspiring book which brings together the efforts of those who have been fund raising for Help for Heroes and the heroes for whom they have been working. A testament to courage and hope, it will enrich both your life and those of these young heroes, if you buy only one book this year, make it this one.' BASC Shooting & Conservation
'The Hero Inside features stories and pictures of soldiers whose horrific injuries are justifiably comparable to those sustained by veterans on the beaches of Normandy 65 years ago. If we imagined that modern warfare was about sitting in a safe place several hundred miles from an enemy target, looking through crosshairs and pressing the button of a missile launcher, the book provides a useful wake-up call. Even for the casual reader, The Hero Inside is a humbling experience, not least because from the faces of almost every wounded soldier comes a smile. All smiling the smiles of heroes.'
