Praise for Adam Holloways new book Duty Nobly Done continue to flow. Lots of love for this family tribute to the extraordinary true story of 11 young Australian men from one extended family and their experiences in the great adventure that would change their lives — the Great War.
“This book is a testament to its author. As I read it, I often had to remind myself it was not entirely written by one (or several) of the gentleman in the story themselves. The ‘boys’ in this story, I daresay, would be extremely proud of the author and his dedication to thorough research and respect when telling the story of his ancestors. As for the author, I can only imagine how proud he is of them.“
“Excellent! I did not want to put the book down, I just wanted to keep reading it. Bloody good author.”
“The title of his books speaks well of his forebears, and it acknowledges too the work Adam has given us. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a ‘damn good read’, and especially to those seeking to understand what it is our Military personnel (from WW1 to the present), and their families live with.”
“This is a brilliant, debut, tour-de-force by a young Queensland author. The Great War experiences of 11 First AIF Anzacs — all related and mostly from Queensland’s Roma district — have been memorialised and brought to life through extraordinarily deft writing and narrative aplomb. This is a page-turner that hints at the sacrifice, honour, humour, setbacks, exhilaration and dread all who enlisted in the “War to End All Wars” knew, but never had the chance to set down on paper.”
