It’s 1915 in Melbourne, and Bobby Wilkinson is nineteen years old and a rising star for the famous Collingwood football club. But, half a world away, a war has begun, and Bobby heeds the call of adventure and embarks on a journey that will be the polar opposite of the bright future he has left behind – and gain him the enmity of a man whose malevolent shadow will dog him for decades to come.
The horrors of the blood-soaked fields of the Western Front, the seedy underworld of post-war Melbourne, the anarchy during the police strike of 1923, the misery and poverty of the Great Depression – ‘HOLLOW VICTORY: THE FOOTBALLER AND THE GENERAL’ is an epic story that weaves the events of the most tumultuous period in Australian history with the experiences of those who lived through it.
