Probert, Sherriff & Probert, John,

Wakefield Press, Australia, 2002. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Photographic. First Edition. Inscribed by Author on Title Page. 350 g; VIII, 216 pages, last five pages advertisements, index, with bibliographic references, appendices including family tree and chronology, illustrated with facsimiles of documents, and monotone photographs, and maps etc. Inscribed on the title page, with an accompanying note from the author John Probert's home dated 20/9/01, commenting upon how delighted they were with the reception that the book was getting, and that " to"be published "would-be success enough but it's selling as well ...". Set against the turbulent backdrop of armed conflict and a crippling depression, Prisoner of Two Wars is far more than simply the story of an Australian -- possibly the only Australian -- to become a prisoner in two world wars. Following the faintest of footprints, the authors embark on a journey to uncover the life and times of a man they barely knew -- their father, Jack Probert, a knockabout, everyday Australian. In doing so, they reveal a dramatic tale of high adventure, perseverance, courage and ultimate tragedy. Spanning four decades this is a compelling saga of a very ordinary man whose destiny and fate is shaped by extraordinary circumstances."
