Anzac

anzac the l anding chambers stephen

Futilely after eight gruelling months of fighting, the campaign came to an end with the complete evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsula. This attractive and well-written book will serve as either a handy guide or concise history or both. The swift push inland was defeated by fierce Turkish defence and counter-attack during which Mustafa Kemal famously ordered his troops to die defending against the attackers. Almost a century later, with all the veterans now sadly gone, their legacy still survives in Anzac Day and with the ever increasing numbers of pilgrims who visit the battlefield today. It is a very enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone.
