Description - One Minute's Silence by David Metzenthen

WINNER: 2015 Prime Minister's Literary Award, Children's Fiction WINNER: CBCA Book of the Year, Crichton Award for New Illustrators, 2015 HONOUR BOOK: CBCA Picture Book of the Year, 2015

In one minute of silence you can imagine sprinting up the beach in Gallipoli in 1915 with the fierce fighting Diggers, but can you imagine standing beside the brave battling Turks as they defended their homeland from the cliffs above.

In the silence that follows a war long gone, you can see what the soldiers saw, you can feel what the soldiers felt. And if you try, you might be able to imagine the enemy, and see that he is not so different from you.

In One Minute's Silence, you are the story, and the story is yours - to imagine, remember and honour the brothers in arms on both sides of the conflict, heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives.

A moving and powerful reflection on the meaning of Remembrance Day.
