- Yvon's great adventure
Yvon's great adventure
The story of Yvon Calmus - the boy from Franvillers - and his great adventure from France to Australia.
Yvon's great adventure is the extraordinary true story of how a French boy survived the final year of war on the Western Front, and a journey to Australia thanks to the protective care of his 'adoptive' family of knockabout Australian soldiers.
Written from the perspective of a 15-year-old boy, this book tells the compelling story of Yvon's rescue and new life abroad, while also serving as an excellent education resource about the personal impacts of war. Suitable for primary and secondary school students.
