Kenneth Price is a retired Vietnam veteran. When he was seventeen, he enlisted into the Australian Army and was trained as a medic. He was sent to Vietnam in 1968 and worked in a field ambulance and field hospital. His grandfather served in the 9th Battalion in France from 1916 to 1918, and his father served in the Australian Army during WWII. Kenneth's uncle also served as a bomber pilot in WWII and was shot down and killed in 1944. After returning from Vietnam, Kenneth married and went to university where he graduated with Distinction in an Arts Degree, majoring in History and Literature. He also has a Bachelor of Education and a Masters (with Distinction) in Australian Political History. Kenneth spent fourteen years teaching History and English at Brisbane Grammar School and eight years as a lecturer in English in Singapore, where he helped his students obtain their ?O' and ?A' levels from Cambridge University. Writing has always been his passion, and following retirement he was inspired to research his family's military history. This led to writing his first book, Broken Lives, which covers some of the exploits of his grandfather's 9th Battalion. Kenneth has six children and ten grandchildren. He is currently married to his second wife and lives in Hervey Bay, Queensland.
