Included in this book are a collection of factual and often humorous stories. The Invincible Twenty Seventh recounts the experiences of a 16-year-old Australian infantryman fighting on the Western Front during World War 1. The tough day to day life in the trenches is broken only by short respites at the rear or advancing into battle when he experiences unimaginable horrors. The Anzac soldier comes alive as the author uses his original diary and maps to describe his movements and experiences during critical battles on the now serene farmland of northern France. Other stories include unexplained paranormal experiences, a grand sailing adventure and some humorous travel accounts. Travel back in time to a near derelict society of the 1930s Great Depression. 'Great Aunt Agnes' and 'Half Days and Patched Pants' enable the reader to live and breathe the childhood experiences of the author and his relationships with his often eccentric relatives. The number and variety of subjects covered in these stories will, I'm sure, only enhance the enjoyment of the reader. Enjoy.
