With the outbreak of war in 1914, best friends Wally and Roy, and new mate Tom, are among the first to enlist.

But their great adventure soon turns to disaster. The day after the landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, more than 2,000 of their fellow Anzacs are dead and the bold attempt by the Allied commanders to knock the Turks out of the war becomes a stalemate.

As the Gallipoli campaign drags on, Wally, Roy and Tom find themselves locked in combat with a formidable enemy, a ferocious landscape, flies, fleas, cold and disease.

An Anzac Tale is a beautiful and thought-provoking graphic novel that skilfully introduces the events of the Gallipoli campaign.

 

Suitable for ages 7+.

Soft cover, illustrated, 72 pages.
