Over 100 Australians who served in Afghanistan have committed suicide since returning to civilian life. Partners and family members also suffer, in their shared lives with emotionally scarred war veterans. Ex-service personnel and affected relatives provided author Ian Ferguson with fascinating first-hand information for the esearch of Wars That Never End. Their confronting recollections surfaced in personal interviews, and sometimes in Diggers' letters and diary entries from front line battle fields, dating back to the Boer War. Few publications candidly tackle the contentious issue of mental health among combat veterans, so this book is a must read for all discerning lovers of Australian war history.
Ian Ferguson and the Brolga Publishing Company have now been involved in the production of 11 books. This versatile best-selling author has previously written successfully on diverse topics, such as cricket, true crime scenarios, national disasters and Australian outback characters. Recently Ian has turned his attention to war history themes. Wars That Never End is his compelling new book, which will generate an enthusiastic response among the reading public.
