World War II Unsung Heroes' Courage Celebrated in New Memoir

World War II Unsung Heroes' Courage Celebrated in New Memoir

From the dynamic speaker, facilitator and co-author of "Raising Difficult Children," Soldiers in Different Armies is the inspiring true story about two people who, though worlds apart, did their best to contribute together to the fabric of society and honour God through their service of others. While thousands of memoirs are published each year-many about famous personalities-Brenda Inglis-Powell's newly published work stands out because while it is about ordinary people, it reveals extraordinary lives, accomplishes a four-fold mission, and resonates with a vast array of audiences.

Inglis-Powell's real-life characters are the epitome of courage in the face of overwhelming odds of poverty and the shocking toll war inflicts, both during the conflict and for years after the declaration of peace. It bespeaks the courage of William "Jock" Inglis and "uncle" Albert Moore unarmed while supplying comforts to the troops in the Middle East and on Kokoda, sometimes metres from the enemy during WWII; the courage of Ivy Trethewey and the many women who took responsibility for raising families-mothers whose son's life seeped into the soil of a foreign country, wives who often had to explain to their children that daddy would never come back-while the men, husbands, sons and brothers were fighting at the frontline.

The book accomplishes four significant things. First, it honors the memory of older generations and the price they paid for securing peace and freedom. Secondly, it reminds "Baby Boomers" how it used to be through its historical content and offers a reason why "the ghosts never died." Thirdly, it educates younger generations through lessons on social history, making them truly appreciate the price paid for their freedom and affluence-the price Australia paid for freedom. Lastly, it shares with historians a story about a little-known man who worked beside a famous man, and who was the reason so much was achieved for the men fighting World War II.

Despite its valuable impact on its readers, the book possesses a humble beginning. Inglis-Powell simply longed to understand her own childhood. What started out as a quest to understand herself and her family blossomed into this stirring memoir about the remarkable true story of two ordinary people who faced life with all its challenges: poverty, war, illness tyranny of distance, and won. However, the prize was not what they expected.
