Told through Sydney's optimistic letters home and his journal, this is his honest portrayal of the disillusionment and degradation of life and death in the trenches of World War I.

People who read this book made the following comments:- alex 13 April 2011 I found BILLY one of those rare books you read which you cant stop reading but you dont want to finishI hope Bill Green writes a sequel. elpokid 2 May 2011 BILLY What a great read. The book made me realise how hard and cruel life was during and after the war. My only disappointment was that the book had to come to an end. I found myself rationing my reading time just to stretch out the remaining pages. jobgre 9 May 2011 BILLY This book gives a very descriptive account of how life was for evacuees during World War 2. What is also apparent is that life for the author and his brother were not just hard when evacuated, but did not change when they returned to the care of their father and stepmother. An extremely good read which I would recommend

He yanked the slide of his rifle and clicked the safety on. A condom was stretched over the rifle barrel to keep out salt water. As the beach grew closer, Japanese mortar shells began to fall. They exploded all around the small craft. The anxiety was growing ten-fold with each explosion. West gripped his rifle tighter and tighter. Amongst the torrents of the greatest conflict ever fought, World War II, eighteen-year-old soldier Peter West must overcome his fears and summon his courage to fight the Japanese in 1942. Follow West through a journey of passion, love, valor, and death in Andrew Avery's debut novel, Foxholes and Flashbacks. He has left the love of his life, Catherine, back at home to await his return. On his quest to survive, West will face many perils: thousands of enemy soldiers, hills bristling with machine gun emplacements, suicidal nighttime attacks, and the hazardous jungle terrain. Accompanying West on his adventure are a collection of other soldiers in his rifle squad. Through alternating between flashbacks and the wartime present, Avery delves into the harsh realities of war. With an unflinching look into the pain and suffering of the era, Foxholes and Flashbacks delivers a punch that is sure to keep you turning page after page.

An intimate portrait of the postwar lives of Korean children and women Korean children and women are the forgotten population of a forgotten war. Yet during and after the Korean War, they were central to the projection of US military, cultural, and political dominance. Framed by War examines how the Korean orphan, GI baby, adoptee, birth mother, prostitute, and bride emerged at the heart of empire. Strained embodiments of war, they brought Americans into Korea and Koreans into America in ways that defined, and at times defied, US empire in the Pacific. What unfolded in Korea set the stage for US postwar power in the second half of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. American destruction and humanitarianism, violence and care played out upon the bodies of Korean children and women. Framed by War traces the arc of intimate relations that served as these foundations. To suture a fragmented past, Susie Woo looks to US and South Korean government documents and military correspondence; US aid organization records; Korean orphanage registers; US and South Korean newspapers and magazines; and photographs, interviews, films, and performances. Integrating history with visual and cultural analysis, Woo chronicles how Americans went from knowing very little about Koreans to making them family, and how Korean children and women who did not choose war found ways to navigate its aftermath in South Korea, the United States, and spaces in between.
