Light Horse boy

Dianne Wolfer with illustrations by Brian Simmonds

In 1914 Jim and Charlie abandon the Australian outback for the excitement and adventure of the war to end all wars. In the Light Horse they quickly discover the brutal realities of life on the frontline. For them, nothing would ever be the same again.

Featuring stunning charcoal sketches by Brian Simmonds alongside primary source documents and historical photos, Light Horse Boy goes behind the scenes of the great ANZAC legends for an intimate look at their experience of the First World War.
