Published In: New Zealand, 24 March 2005

Commemorates the 90th anniversary of Gallipoli. Superb photographic book brings to life the untold stories of front-line Anzacs and the war Correspondent Charles Bean (Sydney Morning Herald) with photographs from Phillip Schuler (The Age). Although Australian originated, this book has significant NZ content. Gallipoli was a tragic campaign: 2000 Anzacs slaughtered in first 24 hours; 11,410 Anzacs in the nine months (of which 2700 were New Zealanders). This unique book combines for the first time the official recordings of Bean and Schuler: many of the photos never published before. extracts from Bean's private diaries in which he recorded the realities he was not allowed to print in his newspaper stories because of wartime censorship. Another unique element are the personal stories of more than 100 Australians and NZers who served at Gallipoli. Following an appeal to readers, the Sydney Morning Herals, The Age and Dominion Post were inundated with memorabilia, diaries and photos from families to include in this book.
