Cover Reveal for 'The Lost Boys' by Paul Byrnes
The Lost Boys: extraordinary stories of the underage Anzac soldiers of WW1 features never-before-seen stories and photos of 40 Anzac soldiers (including one girl) who lied about their age (and gender) to enlist in the Australian army and fight in WWI.
Their youth did not save them, but it did distinguish these remarkable soldiers, whose stories have never been told. Written by the former director of the Sydney Film Festival, The Lost Boys is as personal as military history gets, a powerful homage to youthful bravery and a poignant reminder of the sacrifice of war.
