9780143011330: Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore

It was an adventure to die for. A daring attempt to force the Dardanelles and capture the Turkish capital Constantinople. For the Allies it was the Trojan War and crusade combined. The Gallipoli Campaing was to become one of the most savagely contested of the First World War.

On 25 April 1915, Allied troops stormed the cliffs of Gallipoli. Twenty-eight thousand Australians were killed and wounded in the bloody, eight-month campaign. The raging battles of the Landing, the desperate assault on Lone Pine, the gallant but futile charge at the Nek, are all engraved on the national psyche. Gallipoli is now regarded as a defining episode in Australian history. It is an extraordinary story of determination and courage, as the intrepid and resourceful Anzacs displayed the spirit that was to distinguish them on the Western Front as the Empire's most formidable offensive troops.

This book by Harvey Broadbent, a leading authority on the campaign and producer of the acclaimed ABC documentary Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore, seeks to convey the story of Gallipoli to Australians of all ages. It features a foreword by General Peter Cosgrove, Chief of the Australian Defence Force.

Book Description Penguin Aus., 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. IT WAS AN ADVENTURE to die for.  A daring attempt to force the Dardanelles and capture the Turkish capital Constantinople.  For the Allies it was the Trojan War and crusade combined. Once again Europe would prevail over an ancient enemy.  History records otherwise.  The Gallipoli Campaign was to become one of the most savagely contested for the First World War and end in defeat and controversy.  Over 400 000 Allied troops were killed and wounded as the Peninsula became a killing ground as deadly as any on the Western Front.The raging battles of the landing, the defeats at Krithia and on the Suvla plain, the desperate Australian assaults on Lone Pine and the Nek, the heroism of the Gurkhas at Sari Bair, and of the New Zealanders at Chunuk Bair resonate down the years in many nations.Written by Harvey Broadbent, a leading authority, Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore situates this remarkable story within its multinational context.  Illustrated with over 100 photographs and artworks form collections in Australia, Britain, New Zealand and Turkey, this is a fascinating insight into the campaign in which national identity was forged.'A balanced, highly informed, simply but very well written account.' THE AGE'An expert and realistic picture of a young nation battered but matured by its first war experience.' CANBERRA TIMES'A beautifully produced book, about a subject that has surely become one of the defining points in our history.'NEWCASTLE HERALD. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # MM-40006714
