ANZAC Infantryman 1914-15 : From New Guinea to Gallipoli Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Graham Turner

Part of the Warrior series

Description

This title explores the recruitment, training, and combat experiences of the famous ANZAC infantry in the opening years of World War I.

When war broke out in 1914, men rushed to the colours even before their governments had formally offered troops to Britain.

The decision to employ the ANZACs in the Dardanelles came as a complete surprise, but the events at the Anzac and Suvla beach-heads quickly revealed the discipline and bravery of the men involved.

This book takes a close look at day-to-day life in the trenches of Gallipoli, and explores how the wounded were treated.

The experience of Gallipoli had a profound effect on its survivors, and it continues to mark the psyche of the two nations down to the present day.
