has polished its account to let us believe that somehow it was the birth of our democratic nation, but this was no rite.

A boy is born into a town beset by the worst of these troubles and must struggle to make
his mark, whilst trying to look after his family. We know too well in today’s world that one simple life can change
the world we know, but little of those in the past who did. This is the account that’s waiting to be told, for the monstrosity
of war creates its children and just like so many of them, the truth is so often the first to be orphaned.
