Born in 1946? is one in 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 1946. He presents these happenings in a thoroughly readable book. And in 1946, although the War was over, rationing still persisted, bundles for Britain were filling dozens of ships, and they came back filled with war brides. Trial and execution finished the broadcasting career of Lord Haw Haw. Sadly, very sadly, the atrocities at Sandakan became known, and Lawson Gallop’s book “We Were the Rats” was published and sold, over the dead bodies of our Censors.

Each volume in this series describes the happenings that affected people, real people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten. The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and rediscover a heritage otherwise forgotten.  Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered.

    I appreciate this book, however feel that the way it is advertised does not refect its true self. The cover gives the impression that it is full of pictures not just facts. I bought it for a fellow genealogist however she was disappointed.
