Tales from WWI

GALLIPOLI (Hardie Grant Books RRP $59.95) tells the story of this campaign in a unique and comprehensive manner, through three authors who expertly describe each of their country's roles and the impact that the conflict had. Perfectly timed to mark the centenary of the Gallipoli landing, Gallipoli's co-authoring brings together authoritative history writers from all three sides of the conflict: England, Turkey and Australia, to tell each country's story in balance and detail. This centenary edition contains rare and newly researched removable documentation and memorabilia including facsimiles of official military orders, maps showing the campaign and letters and diaries written by soldiers on the front line.

Removable memorabilia includes: The order Mustafa Kemal sent on the day of the Lone Pine attack; An annotated sketch of the landing place at ANZAC Cove; Lieutenant Colonel Harold "Pompey" Elliott's account of the brutal fighting at Lone Pine; The message ordering the 2nd Australian Brigade to attack on 8 May 1915.

Gallipoli is a graphically illustrated record of one of the First World War's most remarkable campaigns-perfect for collectors or as a keepsake.
