As people get a little bit older, they become more reflective on their lives. Nostalgia edges in and they start to look back at their childhood and dwell on those early years. But when they get back to 1945 when it began for them, they can't remember a thing. 

Born in 1945? is one is a series of year-by-year books that highlight the social history happenings in Australia at that time. So if you'd like to know what happened in the year you were born - you can't get a better book that this.

Arranged chronologically by months, Ron Williams has scoured newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during 1945. He presents these happenings in a thoroughly readable book, with both respect and some added humour.   

He ask the question, do you think that the world is moving too quickly now? If so, then think about 1945. In 4 months Roosevelt died, Curtin died, Hitler died, Germany surrendered, Japan was A-bombed and then surrendered, thousands of war criminals were hung from streetlamps, millions starved to death, and soldiers slowly came home.
