The Beach they Called Gallipoli
With Bruce Whatley
A hundred years ago, Australians and New Zealanders landed at Anzac Cove, in Turkey.
This is the story of Gallipoli as see from the cove; the story of that beach, where thousands died and legends were born.
This book highlights an almost forgotten aspect of Gallipoli: the land itself.
Some notes on the book
Many books have been written about the battles of Gallipoli; the men who went to war and what they faced, the letters, and the tears of those left behind. But this is a book about Gallipoli, the place, and what happened on Gallipoli Beach from April - December 1915. With beautiful and painterly illustrations by Bruce Whatley this is a book that explores the beach where the battles took place. This is more than a book about ANZACS; this is a book about and for all of the nationalities who fought at that cove, not matter what side they were on.
