the pain of separation and return -
by Michael McKernan
It deals with a world that military history has preferred to ignore- the impact of war on wives, mothers, sons, daughters, relatives, and friends - and the soldiers themselves once they were left to their own resources. The book contains their anguished correspondence to Prime Minister John Curtin from wives, mothers and fathers, giving a keen insight into the suffering of families. It also explores the terrible torture and deprivation of prisoners in the Japanese camps. It is an absorbing examination of what it was like to wait and worry on the home front during the years of the loved ones' captivity.
