NWDFHG meeting – Carol Rosenhain – The Men behind the Myth: the Fighting Leanes of Prospect
May 20 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Narre Warren & District Family History Group meeting on Saturday May 20, 2023 at 2.00pm will have Carol Rosenhain, the author of The Men behind the Myth: the Fighting Leanes of Prospect as their guest speaker. With meticulous research, Carol Rosenhain examines and questions the validity of Charles Bean’s assertion that the Leane family was the most famous family of soldiers in Australian history. She evaluates the contribution of its six fathers and five sons and compares their commitment with other families who also helped shape the ANZAC legend. The book explores the strength of familial bonds, loyalty, the impact of faith, and the realities of lives spent in service to the nation. It is a story of both heartbreak and celebration.
Venue: L’Arté Central Social Enterprise Café Training Room, Casey Complex, 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East & Zoom.
