Book Description

It is 1914, Perth, Western Australia. There is great excitement throughout the country as Germany launches its attack in Europe. Thousands of Australians flock to join up in the armed forces to help the 'Mother Land', Britain, resist the attack. Among these are David, Bert and Bluey all young men eager to join the 10th Light Horse Brigade. They succeed and after an eventful training period find themselves sent not to Europe to fight the 'Hun' but to the peninsula of Gallipoli via Egypt to fight the German allies, the Turks. It is a killing ground, barren, cut through by deep ravines and high ridges,where the opposing sides are often only a few yards away from each other in trenches living in atrocious conditions, a poor diet, and the ever present stink of the dead when death can come at any moment.The innocence of the three young men is short lived when they encounter the horror that is Gallipoli!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sad but good 19 Sept. 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gave alot of information about pre deployment and signing up and got to know the characters, could not put the book down. Found it skimmed over some aspects when itncouldnhave gone into more detail and maybe after all the build up could have given more time to the fighting itself. A stroy about human suffering and survival very moving tho.

good insight into 1st ww.A bit romanticised but factually helpful.The Dardanelles campaign was a relentless and impossible part of the conflict. The author tried to show this in soft focus.

I liked this book because I have been reading numerous other books on the subject of the Gallipoli disaster. I am trying to catchup my reading on the ww1 era.

Interesting story. Bought an electronic version which was full of spelling and punctuation errors, making it seem very amateurish.
