The World War One Diaries, Letters and Sketches of Harold Stephens and W 'Billy' O'Neil. Over 90 years ago two friends from the farming community of Cowra, New South Wales joined the Australian Army - the journalist/cartoonist Harold Stephens and his friend and neighbouring farmer W 'Billy' O'Neil.

This book combines the diaries and photos of these two men, plus Hal Stephens' sketches, newspaper articles and extracts from his unpublished book Sacrifice Unending. The material reveals the horrors of their wartime experiences and the tragic story of a young French farm girl embroiled in two World Wars.

Destined to become a classic giving a true insight into the horrors of this thing we call war.
