Will keeping the Japanese, Korean and Italian POWs of the Second World War alive in Australia keep Australian POWs alive and well wherever they are? Like The Daughters of Mars and all his best work, what this novel does so brilliantly is to explore the intimacies and extraordinary aspects of ordinary lives being played out against grand world events. And this time, the events take place on home turf. It is about the lives of the farmers, townspeople and soldiers training and working for this cataclysmic international event that is taking place at a distance. This is not the Western Front but a NSW farming community having to deal with ?the enemy?. Many of the townspeople and soldiers have husbands, sons, brothers who are away at war, missing, imprisoned or perhaps dead. The moral quandary they have is deciding how to treat these POWs in their midst.
