On dangerous ground: a Gallipoli story

SHOP:9781742583938

In 1915 Lt Roy Irwin goes missing at Gallipoli. The young woman who loves him, and the men who fought beside him, begin their search. In 1919, historian CEW Bean returns to ANZAC Cove with artist George Lambert and soldier Harry Vickers to solve the greatest mystery of the campaign, to discover Gallipoli’s secret.

Forward to 2015, and Dr Mark Troy’s quest to preserve the peninsula from roadworks is sidetracked by political intervention and diplomatic intrigue. A flirtation with a dynamic young woman from Army Intelligence uncovers long-forgotten documents protecting Gallipoli’s graves.

Eagerly awaited, one of Australia’s leading historians uses fact and fiction to recreate the most dramatic moments of the Gallipoli campaign.

On Dangerous Ground is fast-paced retelling of one of the weightiest moments of the 20th century.

Soft cover, photographs, 263 pages.
