    "An extraordinary insight into the war experiences of a very young man, and the relationship between a son and his mother, during the horrors of Galipoli and its aftermath ... Sapper Hubert Anthony was seventeen when he enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in October 1914. He wrote deeply affectionate letters home to his mother in outback New South Wales. They show the thoughts of a young man encountering the world for the first time, provide great insights into the relationship between a son and his mother, and tell of a long-gone period in Australi' s rural history."--Publisher description.
