WYEE POINT, Australia, April 27, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In his latest publication, "Growing Up in Berrima" (published by Balboa Press AU), Trevor Wrightson gives readers a glimpse of the past as he recounts his life growing up in the 1930s to the 1950s.
Wrightson was born in 1934 during the Great Depression, in the small town of Berrima, located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. He was 6 years old when the World War II commenced. His town was selected to train soldiers to fire guns, cannons, drive tanks and trucks, and march through the street of Berrima. In this memoir, he tells of the bombing of Darwin and 14 other towns and cities in Australia, after the Japanese invaded New Guinea. Their intention was to attack Australia and this story outlines how the Australian soldiers defended their country.
"Growing Up in Berrima" depicts the frightening effect the war had on a young boy and how his life changed after. It then continues with many interesting, life-changing events occurring during his teenage years, his development into a young man and, finally, his marriage in 1957.
When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, the author says, "How life is so much easier now, especially with the introduction of electricity."
