Discover the untold stories of extraordinary individuals who were lost to the conflict of World War I.

For Australia, a new nation with a relatively small population, the death of 60,000 soldiers during World War I was catastrophic. Through comprehensive research, Author and Historian Ross McMullin has uncovered stories of fallen soldiers who exemplified Australia’s gifted lost generation.

Farewell, Dear People reveals the extended biographies of ten remarkable young men who lost their lives in combat. including an internationally acclaimed medical researcher; a potential Australian Kitchener; a rising Labor star; an engineer from Mawson’s Antarctic mission; a visionary vigneron; a Western Australian Rhodes Scholar; a Tasmanian footballer; and an architect with a flair for writing and drawing.

By telling their stories for the very first time, Ross hopes to ensure they will all live on in our memory.

Ross McMullin has written extensively about Australia’s involvement in World War I and the impact it has made. His books include biographies, the award-winning Pompey Elliott and Will Dyson: Australia’s radical genius.
