Huge numbers of men were conscripted during the First World War in Germany and, as more were called up each year, this left the country short of male labour. A shortfall in food importation, partly due to blockades by the Allied Forces, resulted in food shortages across Germany.
Here are ten people who did just that, because sometimes you need to know people like that exist. While Fox was directing fire, a large German force moved in on his position.
Realising that this force was a huge threat to his men, Fox called a final artillery strike—on himself. Vincent Coleman—a train operator— was at a nearby station who was in charge of traffic. When he was informed that French munitions ship the Mont—Blancwas moments away from exploding, Coleman stayed behind to warn a nearby passenger train to stop.
Moments later he was killed by the resulting explosion. Some 20 minutes later, a helicopter arrived to rescue the survivors.
When the helicopter came back for a third time, he did the same thing again.
When the helicopter came back a final time, Arland was dead. Of those millions, 12 literally surrounded by things they could eat.

Proof that when someone tells you to leave them behind, you should do it. Ryan Arnold had that urge when his brother Chad desperately needed a liver transplant.

Takeshi Miura and Miki Endo were two government risk management workers tasked with warning and directing the public to safety. When the ten metre wave hit, both Takeshi and Miki stuck to their posts and kept broadcasting, using their last words to direct townsfolk to safety.
When the life jackets ran out, they selflessly gave away their own. When the ship went down, the four men linked arms and began singing. When a suicidal unnamed Kazakhstani man drunkenly fell asleep on a train track, his ever faithful pet dog knew exactly what needed to be done. The dog used all of its doggy powers—pushing, pulling, and nudging its drunken owner off the tracks to safety.How to Subscribe.
