Quick Overview

The Anzacs' Own Story Day by Day.

By Jonathan King.  Published in 2003.  306 pages.

Hardcover in excellent condition.

For the first time, the Gallipoli story is told in the words of the ordinary soldier fighting in the trenches.  Day by day, starting with the landing on 25 April 1915 right up to the last day on 20 December 1915, the world of the Gallipoli soldier is starkly revealed.  It is as if you, the reader, are there sharing the soldier's experience - dodging bullets, scrounging for bully beef, breaking your teeth on Anzac biscuits, going mad with flea bites, catching endless armies of lice, burying your mates day after day, swapping cigarettes with enemy Turks when officers aren't looking, sheltering from rain, shivering in snow, warding off frostbite, thinking of death when your turn comes up to 'go over the top', scribbling a last letter home, praying for deliverance, or shooting yourself in the foot to get out of this hell hole.  Although generals, historians and war scholars might have told their versions, it is only when you read the words of the men in the frontline that you know what it was really like.
