KING, JONATHAN - Gallipoli Diaries  The Anzacs' Own Story Day by Day

Title: Gallipoli Diaries The Anzacs' Own Story Day by Day
Description: Kangaroo Press, Pymble NSW, 2006. Quarto; paperback, illustrated wrappers; 306pp., many monochrome illustrations. Minor wear; a few marks on text block edges; lightly scuffed cover with light wear to edges and corners. Very good. This volume tracks the Gallipoli Campaign day-by-day. Rather than reprint the decisions and analysis of the famous historians or the words of the official accounts of the engagement, this book prints only the letters and journal entries of the men who were there, with their feet in the mud, waiting to go over the top and perhaps to never return home. This is not the polished prose of A.J.P. Taylor or the clinical "maps and chaps" assessment of C.E.W. Bean; this is the war in the Dardanelles, with dirt, bad food, lice, frost, fleas, and swapping cigarettes with the Turks when the officers weren't looking. Also published in this volume for the first time is the complete Honour Roll of all the men who died during the campaign.
