That is a western notion, and mostly American and mostly in the last 50-years. It certainly bears no truth to the classical definition of hero.

Couldn't agree more. Ernest Shackleton hands down, in my opionion, was a hero. Did not even come close to success with regards to his expedition. But he brought back his entire crew alive. I highly recommend the book to anyone who has not read it. It's the "Endurance Expedition".
