    I think the author named the book Billy Macks war, because billy was going through his own war at home on his farm. his farther had just returned from war, he was badly injured.

  2. Ithink that james roy chose that tittle because billy might go into war when he is older thats why i think he chose that tittle

    • Hi 6T,
      Lachlan, sorry to disagree with you but, you do know in the story James Roy makes Billy work as someone who works as a Old People’s Home, (I think Billy was the head or something.)
      Because in the story he’s telling Danny his past.

      Sorry to disagree. ):

  3. I reckon James Roy chose the title because of his dad in war and that Billy might even later in the story go to war to fight for his dad so that why I think that he chose the title Billy Macks War.

  4. i think he called it Billy Mack’s War because Billy was in a fight with other people about his dad because they were saying mean things about Billy’s Dad.

  5. Hi 6T,
    I think James Roy chose the title ‘Billy Mack’s War’ because Billy was going through a war of his own with other people saying rude things about his dad.

  6. Hi 6T,
    I think that it’s called that because Billy has loads of troubles and problems at home. Also people make fun of his dad because he wasn’t home when all of the other men were.

  7. Hi 6T,
    I think James Roy chose ‘Billy Mack’s War’ because, Billy, before his Dad came home, had problems with other kids who said bad things about his Dad. Billy must of found it hard to fight back about it, who wouldn’t?

  8. hi 6T,
    I think the title of the book is called Billy Macks war because he was going through a sort of war with missing and worrying about his Dad and some people were saying mean things.

  9. Hello 6T,
    I think James Roy named the book Billy Mack’s War because Billy was going through his own war at home with his dad acting wierd and people saying nasty things about his dad.

  10. hi 6T
    I think James Roy called the book Billy Mack’s War because Billy was going through a rough time and his dad was getting called mean names and his dad was acting weird to Billy and I think Billy was still angry with his dad because he gave Danny the medal first and not his own son
    and thats why I think they called the book Billy Mack’s war :)
