About the Story

Twelve thousand wild colonial boys dash across the shivering Turkish sand in the pale light of a dairy farmer’s dawn lashed with flying lead... 

David Metzenthen & Michael Camilleri's One Minute's Silence is a poetic, meditative, and powerful look at how we remember war, with images that reflect the human face of conflict. We are given the opportunity to imagine, remember and honour the brothers in arms on both sides of the conflict, heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives.

In the words of reader Shane Jacobson, "this book helps us to remember what we should never forget...those that gave up their Tomorrows so that we could have a Today".

PLEASE NOTE: THIS BOOK IS SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN AGED 10 & UP (NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNGER READERS)
