Author(s): Jonathan King
For the first time the full story of what happened at Gallipoli is told in the words of the soldiers fighting in the trenches. Starting with the landing right up until the last day of the campaign, this is a daily account in the world of the Gallipoli soldier taken from letters and diaries of the men who fought.
"In Jonathan King's "Gallipoli Diaries" we share the experiences of the diggers from day one ... It is a story that is spoken in the sometimes halting words of the soldiers and therein lies its power. There is much here to enlarge our understanding of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign - not least the appalling conditions in the trenches, the daily grind of water carrying, poor food, flies and death." --Christopher Bantick, "Books + Publishing"
