The man steps into the characters of these forgotten soldiers, as well as his own life as a child. The journey breathes life into the men of the battlefields, as well as gives voice to the women of that world; mother, cousin, stranger. Based on the author's own life, and that of his five great-uncles, The Lost Boys becomes a search for the immensity of story which surround us our entire lives.
