Equitainment's Comments

A good glimpse of life of families & friends at home during WW2, interesting ending. The use of Australian words and ways of the time that Jackie French portrays is a very, rewarding read. I am sure adults will find 'Soldier on the Hill' engaging too.

Product Overview

It's World War Two and world is in turmoil, but for Joey the enemy isn't as he imagined.

The hole was moving! The walls were falling down...There was a rope under his arms. There was a face above. An anxious face, yelling something down to him, something he didn't understand. A strange face, with something wrong about the eyes. Tanned skin, unshaven, black hair a bit too long...

Joey knows there is a Japanese soldier hiding in the hills. It was a Japanese man, a soldier, who hauled him out of the mine shaft, who lit the fire to bring the searchers, and then disappeared. But nobody believes Joey.
