AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Many books have been written about the battles of Gallipoli; the men who went to war and what they faced, the letters, and the tears of those left behind. But this is a book about Gallipoli, the place, and what happened on Gallipoli Beach from April - December 1915. With beautiful and painterly illustrations by Bruce Whatley, this is a book that explores the beaches where the battles took place. In focusing on the actual place of war, the book will also examine many other aspects of WW1, from the soldiers and the conditions they fought in, to the civilians at home.This is more than a book about Anzacs; this is a book about and for all of the nationalities who fought at that cove, not matter what side they were on.'
