Jack's journey

SHOP:9781743317709

An ANZACs descent into death, disaster and controversy at Gallipoli.

Jack's Journey is the moving and extraordinary story of an unknown member of No. 15 Platoon, 4th Battalion at Gallipoli during the period of the Landing on 1 and 2 May, 1915. Kit Cullen began tracing Jack Collyer's story using his three diaries and his service record. The diaries cover the voyage from Australia to training in Egypt and Lemnos and, finally, landing at ANZAC. Unfortunately, the last diary ended as Jack entered the firing line on Bolton's Ridge at dusk on 25 April. He was wounded a week later.

What Kit discovered over ten years of painstaking research is extraordinary.

Soft cover, photographs, 366 pages.
