Many books have been written by officers, historians and military experts on the part the Anzacs played in the Dardanelles campaign during the First World War. There are very few by the ordinary soldier. Roy Kyle started writing this memoir at the age of 89 and almost completed it before he died. A typical Anzac, fiercely patriotic, he enlisted in the A.I.F. in 1915, several months underage. He spent his eighteenth birthday in the terrible trenches of Gallipoli and then went on to serve on the Western Front. An Anzac's Story is an honest, poignant account of a young man's experience of war. It is much more than this, though, for Roy Kyle's story begins with his colourful, classic Australian childhood in country New South Wales and Victoria in the early years of last century. Bryce Courtenay, who helped get Roy Kyle's memoirs published, has provided a moving introduction to his life and times. Contents include:
The Beginning and Early Days, Early Gooramadda Days, 1903-1909, Germy, Early School Days, Notables and Others, Family, Relatives, Pets and Fashions, More Gooramadda Episodes, Huckleberry Finn, A New Beginning, Background to the War Years by Bryce Courtenay, War — 1914 Gallipoli, France, Going Home Please click here to ask a question
