On Anzac Day 2010, a 96-year-old man in Hobart, a returned soldier from World War II, wrote a letter to the local paper thanking the people who were going to that morning's dawn service.

His experiences included surviving the Burma Railway, where he was under the command of Australian war hero, Weary Dunlop. Archie's Letter also tells how he dealt with his wartime experiences; how, at the age of 91, he agreed to meet a group of elderly Japanese women interested in world peace; how he could never forget the young men who were with him during the war and who didn't come back
Richo by Matthew Richardson ( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Matthew Richardson, known as Richo, retired in 2009 as the most popular player in the AFL. Why was that? The careers of other great players like Nathan Buckley and Michael Voss amount to a sort of sporting perfection. Richo's career didn't. He was fallible. His kicking was flawed and he had an inability to hide his feelings on the ground but in other respects he was extraordinarily gifted. He was one of the best marks in the competition and it is said he could have run for Australia

The game in time of war by Martin Flanagan ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'So what is football to me? It's been a window, a game, a second language. Some years it has mattered more than others and some seasons have only come alive at finals time. My relationship with footy had never been severed, but nor had its power ever been tested. That's why, as the unthinkable slowly dawned on me - the war in Iraq was going to happen and Australia was going to be involved, regardless of the wishes of the Australian people - it came as a considerable relief to find I could go to a game and for a couple of hours escape what was happening in the world.' Martin Flanagan's new book looks at Australian culture through that most intimate and searching of mediums - sport. The result is a book that asks big questions, while retaining the bounce and rhythm of the prose that one would expect from a world-class sports writer
