Thank you Jeff for another entertaining listen. Very enjoyable and now I’m off to find a 3rd. I really like the way you weave history into the plot and how you “come clean” at the end. It says a lot of good things about you. Highly recommend.

A great book

Well looks like I’ve found another favourite author and I’m about to download another Jeff Edwards book. The authors personal end message was well worth listening to as well. Thank you for the hours of entertainment Jeff and Tom!

Beautifully researched and scribed with the added treasure of hearing the author tell it as he would have it heard. This book is an unexpected find.

An outstanding work of an outstanding time with precious details that should all be known. Intensely interesting, shocking, tragic , sad and all emotions in one. Well done to our ancestors, I don’t imagine back so long ago they would expect the grown men of today to weep at their stories and with such National pride - but there ya go. I wasn’t aware that Monash was subject to such prejudice after the Great War - even more credit to a great Australian. Thank you Peter for such an absorbing work and to Michael for such a vivid performance.

Marvellous

Michael Veitch has done a great service in researching and writing this marvellous piece of intense personal military history. I belly laughed often and cried almost as much, as the stories from these humble old warhorses recounting their youth unfolded. Thank you for everything gentlemen.

An honest, intense, no holes bared biography

This work of reference and I say that not book, is a superb example of investigative work that told it like history should record it and it should be known. Beautifully written, very skilfully narrated it held my interest from beginning to end. The use of German language with an accompanying translation to English was unusual and added greatly to the gusto of the time, another clever element in a brilliant expose of important family tidings interwoven with sometimes catastrophic events. - thank you

The author provides an intensely interesting account of the times and by reflection. For those, like myself who don't speak French I'm sure though I have missed many points made in the book as there is no translations of these numerous comments.
