The innocence of Australian life in 1939 is shattered by the outbreak of war. The subsequent awakening of a nation is reflected through the lives of the characters in Gods of War. The battle rages both at home and abroad, with those left behind as deeply affected as those on the battlefields. Neither the country nor its people will ever be the same again.
