Notes

  • Dedication: To the First Australian Division.
  • Originally published as a novel, the second edition of the work appeared with the preliminary note: 'This book, written in Australia, Egypt and Gallipoli, is true.' This caused the work to break Australian censorship rules and it was withdrawn from sale. (Source: Susanna and Jack De Vries, To Hell and Back : The Banned Account of Gallipoli: xi)
  • Other formats: The original work was also published in braille.
