Letters from Gallipoli: New Zealand soldiers write home.
Edited by Glyn Harper
Letters from Gallipoli offers a powerful first-hand account of a pivotal event in New Zealand’s history that will not fail to move and inspire readers. The campaign at Gallipoli in 1915 looms large in New Zealand’s cultural memory. But what did the soldiers think of their time there? Here historian and veteran of both the New Zealand and Australian Army’s, Glyn Harper lets these men speak for themselves, telling the story of the campaign through 190 letters of those who fought on the peninsula. He includes those not generally written of, such as nurses, doctors, chaplains, and Red Cross helpers. He selects letters from all ranks and from a wide representation of the geographical representation of the New Zealand army on Gallipoli.
