An amazing collection of recollections, letters and writing from Australian Soldiers on the front line of war. Aussie Soldier Up Close and Personal takes a look at the values that combine to make the Australian Soldier what he is.
It is not written by writers, but that makes the experience more authentic, so powerful and personal that with each piece of writing the reader is taken through so many emotions that it’s hard to read the book from beginning to end quickly.
I went from tears, to pride, to anger, to laughter, to sympathy and back again in a page.
An amazing piece of Australian literature. Can’t wait to read the next one – Prisoners of War.
