Life So Full of Promise by Ross McMullin – Book Launch

April 20, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join award-winning historian and biographer Ross McMullin for the launch of his new book Life So Full of Promise.

This is his second multi-biography about Australia’s lost generation of the First World War, following Farewell, Dear People, which won national awards including the Prime Minister’s Prize for Australian History.

The rich cast of characters in Life So Full of Promise includes a talented barrister whose outstanding leadership enabled a momentous victory in France; a popular doctor who was more fervently mourned than any other Australian casualty; an admired farmer whose unit was rushed to the rescue in the climax of the conflict; an eminent newspaper editor who kept his community informed about the war while his sons were in the trenches; a brilliant cricketer whose stunning feat became an enduring record; three close sisters who found their lives transformed; and the most versatile top-level sportsman Australia has ever known.

Copies of Life So Full of Promise will be available for purchase and signing.
