Jan. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Sydney, Australia, 25 January 2012 -- Sydney-based author, Justin Sheedy, had readers and festival audiences both laughing and crying with his first book, childhood portrait of 1970s Australia, “Goodbye Crackernight”.  Sheedy’s latest literary offering, “Nor the Years Condemn”, is an historical fiction based on the true Australian story of how, in World War 2, the best & brightest of a generation crossed the Planet to fly and fight against Nazi tyranny - and won. In their late teens and early 20s, the staggering 1-in-3 chance of survival of such shining youths will have readers crying once again, also on the edge of their seats as “Nor the Years Condemn” is a story of the highest (true) adventure imaginable. It has been published this week to rave reviews...

By Michael High, Colorado Springs, USA.

'"Nor the Years Condemn": Where to start? The writing. Excellent. Everything flowed and, from the first chapter to the end, was fluid. Hints here and there as to what may happen in the future were freely dropped along the way. This kept me engrossed, kept me reading.

The story. Again, excellent. The history behind these young men (and women), the planes they used, the circumstances surrounding this time frame, et cetera - all well done. I thoroughly enjoyed the "story" of each character and how they interacted with each other. There were some shockers in there; war is hell, no? I also liked the hint of "espionage" involved.

"Nor the Years Condemn", to me, was a fantastic read. I can but recommend this book to others and impatiently await Justin's next work.'

By Martin Zitek, Sydney, Australia.

'"Nor the Years Condemn" recounts the horrors of war as seen by one elite and effective unit of WWII. The author puts us there, in that time, by depicting: language, description of locations, the attitudes of the people and the spirit of the nation that would see it prevail through its darkest period of history. The reader is shown in clear, flowing narrative how war can touch us all, from the other side of the world, to the heights of the clouds.

The characters feel so real, we are sure they must have existed. The flying is portrayed so brilliantly, we feel an ace fighter pilot must have possessed Justin's head while he wrote this. The planes themselves become characters, even though mere machines, they became tools of victory and a symbol of ingenuity, technology and bloody determination. This is a testament to the research undertaken by the author and his wordsmithing we see as the end result.'

Review by Shell Lancaster, Melbourne, Australia.

'The book “Nor The Years Condemn” is a must have for any history buff. Not only for an insight into what it was like at the start of the war, but also an insight into Sydney at the time. Not only for the boys, everyone will take something away from this. Could definitely see this made into a mini-series or movie. The author sucks you in from the start, it is very hard to put down. You can tell that the author did a lot of research when writing this book and is passionate about the story and characters. Hoping there will be a sequel.'
