Inhaltsangabe: At the beginning of World War II, Britain was in the deepest trouble imaginable. 5 minutes flying time away crouched a monster. Alone against it, Britain called out to her Empire. For pilots. From all corners of that Empire, they volunteered. Only the best & brightest were chosen. Australian Daniel Quinn was one of these young men who came to fly against the monster. They had a 1-in-3 chance of survival. “Nor the Years Condemn” is based on the true story of the young Australians who flew Spitfires against the all-conquering might of Nazi Germany. In their late teens and early-20s, for the job at hand they had to be the ‘shining ones’, rendering the death of so many of them doubly heart-rending for the reader. Daniel Quinn, flanked by the often hilarious young men of his elite ilk, leaves his peacetime life behind to fight tyranny in this portrait of doomed, brilliant youth. With in-the-cockpit flying sequences that readers have described as ‘cinematic’, “Nor the Years Condemn” is also a story of the mothers cursed to relinquish their wonderful sons to war, of first love, of strategic deception and betrayal, of brotherhood and once-in-a-lifetime friendship on a knife’s edge. It is a story of shining young men destined never to grow old, and of those who do: the survivors ‘condemned by the years’, and to their memory of friends who remain forever young.

About the Author: Justin Sheedy had his first book, "Goodbye Crackernight", published in 2009, a comic memoir of growing up in 1970s Australia, back in a long-lost era when a child's proudest possession was not a Playstation but a second-hand bike. "Goodbye Crackernight" was so warmly received by Australian readers that it secured Justin a place on the program of the prestigious Byron Bay Writers' Festival 2010 and is currently orderable through all bookstores and online. In 2012 Justin released "Nor the Years Condemn", Book 1 in his gripping historical fiction trilogy. Intensively based on a true World War Two story untold in fiction format, "Nor the Years Condemn" is a heart-rending story of shining young men destined never to become old, and of those who do: The survivors, 'condemned by the years' and to their memory of friends who remain forever young. Reader Reviews: "Finished it and loved it! An excellent perspective and I'm a big fan of Factional (fact mixed with fiction) writing. A splendid job, Justin. You can tell a lot of effort was put into the research to get things right. More please!! Cheers, Justin." Sheedy has since released Books 2 & 3 in the trilogy, "Ghosts of the Empire" & "No Greater Love", to rave reviews, plus his hilarious sequel to "Goodbye Crackernight", "Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer". He would love to hear from you with your thoughts on his books at his Facebook page. He lives in Sydney, Australia.
