Commemorates the 90th anniversary of Gallipoli. Superb photographic book brings to life the untold stories of front-line Anzacs and the war Correspondent Charles Bean (Sydney Morning Herald) with photographs from Phillip Schuler (The Age).

Unique personal stories of more than 100 ANZAC veterans who served at Gallipoli. Interesting, during the planning of this book an appeal was made to readers of the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and Dominion Post for new accounts of the Gallipoli battle. Following the appeal they were inundated with memorabilia, diaries and photos from families to include in this book.

Gallipoli was a tragic campaign: 2000 Anzacs slaughtered in first 24 hours; 11,410 Anzacs in the nine months (of which 2700 were New Zealanders). This unique book combines for the first time the official recordings of Bean, Schuler supported by many veteran acoounts : many of the photos never published before. Extracts from Bean's private diaries which he was not allowed to print in his newspaper accounts due to wartime censorship.
