Description - Billy Macks War by James Roy
'Home's a good place to be, Billy-boy. I'm glad I got to see it again.' When Captain Mack is released from his prison camp at the end of the war, no one is quite sure what to expect, least of all his son Billy.
Will he be the same man who went off to war so full of hope and pride, or will he be different? Will he even remember his own children? Or will his experiences on the dreaded railway have changed him forever? In his prequel to the powerful Captain Mack, acclaimed author James Roy takes us on a journey back to 1945, to a time when the world was trying to recover after five years of war, and families were learning how to live together all over again.
