Book Description Hodder. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 0733620507Voices of war is a unique book, drawn from a unique resource- The Australian at War Film Archive.The archive consists of interviews with over two thousand Australian's involved in a hundred years of wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations from World War 1 to the present day. It reveals the day-to-day realities of the battlefront, the home front, and the stories of children, wives, husbands, workers and clerics caught up in the greatest challenge of their lives. From signaller to Spitfire pilot, SAS Solider to Stoker, from those who fought alongside is and even some who fought against us. Men and women from every state and territory tell their stories. With a selection of exceptionally compelling and heartfelt stories drawn from the Archive. Not the movements of armies or the portrait of great battles- but real flesh and blood experiences. These are the lives of our countrymen and women as they remember a time they cannot forget. Voices of War will change how we look at our history- and ourselves. Every ANZAC Day we hear the words'LEST WE FORGET"this books makes sure we never will.The stories in Voices of War are not distilled, proven history. Rather they are the memories and reflections of our countryment and women, their lives, their thoughts, their disappointments, tragedies and triumphs. After reading them you will never look at war the same way- michael Caulfied.Ted Smout- World War 1 veteran. memory plays strange things. I'd gone in to receice the Citizen of the yera Award and we went out on King George Square afterwards for a flag-raising ceremony. my daughter was with me and they fired a twelve-gun salute from South Bank and the first shot I went to dive for the ground. My daughter caught me and very shot that was fired it was like I was having a fit. And that was 1988 I think.Salvatore Andakoro- Australian Defence Force, Western Sahara and East Timor ". a soldier from 2004 has the same characteristics as a soldier from 1944 and I can only think it is back to the Australian psyche, our way of life, the way we are raised, our sense of humour, our attitude to jobs. You see a job, that's what's got to be done, let's get in and do it.". Bookseller Inventory # SKU1000002
