Product Overview

1915 means Gallipoli, the birth of the Anzac myth - the year when young Australians sailed off to war with high hopes of adventure, only to find themselves faced with disaster.

With remarkable skill and in hauntingly beautiful prose, Roger McDonald takes the reader on an archetypal Australian journey; one haunted by menace and disillusionment and embedded in our national mythology.

McDonald tells the story of two boys from the bush who, together, discover a future that seems full of promise, drawing them into the exciting turmoil of passion and war. But there is a fateful alliance, in a world all too quickly passing, with an outcome they never could have forseen.
