Synopsis

Soldiers Tales 2 is a unique collection of personal accounts told by soldiers or relatives who have lived with their stories. Spanning the period from World War I through to the conflicts of the modern era, these stories are a mixture of the humorous and the intensely emotional. This collection is unmistakably Australian and is a combination of larrikin yarns and other more serious stories that tell of tragedy and often unspoken pain. Soldiers Tales 2 paints a vivid picture of the soldiers life, both in war and peace. Including tales such as the moment of victory in battle, celebrated with the raising of a battered slouch hat in lieu of a flag, the poignancy of Anzac Day in the devastated war cemetery of battle-scarred Baghdad, and the stark letters from diggers in Timor coping with the aftermath of a national tragedy, these stories showcase both the sad and the uplifting, while also capturing the often laconic humour of the Aussie digger. The stories within Soldiers Tales 2 will warm the heart, bring a smile to the face or a tear to the eye. These tales will appeal to all ages, offering younger readers a fascinating insight into the mind of the soldier at war. The book is stylishly presented and designed for easy reading, the perfect gift book for all ages.
