This War Never Ends:Australian Pows And Families

Picture of This War Never Ends:Australian Pows And Families
An absorbing examination of what it was like to wait and to worry on the homefront during the years of the loved ones' captivity. It deals with a world that military history has preferred to ignore: the impact of war on wives, mothers, sons, daughters, relatives, friends - and on the soldiers themselves, once they were left to their own resources. The book contains their anguished correspondence to Prime Minister, John Curtin, which gives a keen insight into the suffering of families.
