For many Australians, the landings at ANZAC Cove and the battles of Lone Pine and the Nek have become defining moments in our country’s history. Fewer Australians, however, know of the sinking of the Australian submarine AE2, the high casualty rate suffered by Australian forces at Krithia, or the work of the Australian Army Nursing Service on nearby Lemnos, all of which are part of the Gallipoli story. Fully illustrated with photographs and artworks, this edition marks the 95th anniversary of the landings at ANZAC Cove and North Beach and honours the service and sacrifice of Australia’s Gallipoli veterans.
This is an addition to the series, Australians in World War 1.
