2009 ' Gallipoli Revisited in the Footsteps of Charles Bean and The Australian Historical Mission 1919 ' by Janda Gooding

The landing at Gallipoli has been described as the moment that Australia proved itself as a nation. But how is it that we know so much about this famous campaign, and how is it that so many artefacts survive today?
In 1919, Australian war correspondent C.E.W. Bean returned to Gallipoli with a team of artists and photographers under the banner of the Australian Historical Mission. Bean had the foresight to recognise that the Landing on Gallipoli was a defining moment in Australia's
history and everything should be done to conserve those times for future generations.
 
Their aim was to collect battlefield relics, make a photographic survey of the
site and create new artworks that conveyed the power, trauma, and tragedy of
this terrible conflict. Janda Gooding, from the Australian War Memorial, tells
the story of the Australian Historical Mission and explores how its work helped
to form the foundations of the Gallipoli story we know today. Gallipoli Revisited
is lavishly illustrated with images and artworks.
 
Your chance to buy this important work which is an accompanying work to Charles
Bean's original Gallipoli Mission 1st printed in 1948 by the AWM.
If you are like me and can only afford the low quality
1990 reprint of Gallipoli Mission then this book has all the photographs
redone on high quality paper and in a large page format.
This is a high quality book - Don't miss this one!
