This is the fifth book to be released in a series of 30 about life in Australia - one for each year from 1939 to 1968. They describe happenings that affected people, real people. The whole series, to coin a modern phrase, is designed to push your buttons, to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten. The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and re-discover a heritage otherwise forgotten. Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered. Do you think that the world is oving too quickly now? then think about 1945. In 4 months Roosevelt died, Curtin died, Hitler died, Germany surrendered, Japan was A-bombed and then surrendered, thousands of war criminals were hanged from steetlamps, millions starved to death and soldiers slowly came home. dont ever say that the pace of change today is too great.
