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

The author found the reality of the Second World War at first very different from the world of heroic Captain Ball V.C. It was all dirty blankets and Nissen hut obscenities. Then the golden doors miraculously opened and he suddenly found himself in peacetime California, at 19 learning to fly between long weekends in Hollywood where he hobnobbed with his idols like Ginger Rogers, Olivia de Havilland and Kay Francis. Back in Europe, the picture changed once more. The author flew and flew, mastering the Hurricane and the Spitfire, and then the ranting Typhoon. At last he found himself on nodding terms with the ghost of Captain Ball as well as on kissing-cousin terms with the glamorous stars of movie-land. An amusing and exciting wartime biography. Over a long and successful career as a naval historian, Richard Hough wrote numerous books including THE LONGEST BATTLE, THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN and best-selling biographies of both Earl Mountbatten of Burma and his wife, Edwina.

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.
