My book TRENCH ART - the stories behind the talismans was the subject of Richard Fidler's Conversation Hour on ABC Radio National on Remembrance Day 2015.
The book includes a Foreword by Dr Brendan Nelson, Director of the Australian War Memorial, who added the generous endorsement 'Congratulations - a great work.'
Jane A Kimball, author of the definitive work TRENCH ART - An Illustrated History, wrote
Your splendid book arrived a few days ago. . . I like to think that I've bought every book on trench art I can find. Yours is unique in the objects shown and the connections to individual soldiers.
. . . Congratulations on your wonderful book.
Nicholas J Saunders, Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol and author of Trench Art and much more, wrote -
. . . a real contribution to understanding the 'social lives' of trench art. It looks like a coffee table book, but has a deeper emotional message - 'art in the face of war'.

On a personal note, Professor Saunders added 'I could have written much more. . . Great book!' Much appreciated support from a true professional, passionate about his subject.
