Description
 
Gallipoli was the final resting place for tousands of young Australians. Death struck so fast there was not time for escape of burial. And Gallipoli was over there was the misery of the European Campaign.

'The Anzacs' remains unrivalled as the classic account of Australia's involvement in the First World War - of the men who gave birth to a legend. This bestseller has now been reprinted in a hardcover edition.

The author read over 8000 diaries and letters to write her acclaimed best seller. Soldiers sought her out to tell her why they went, what they saw, and how they felt about the great holocaust. Their simple accounts are more vivid than any novel; the years have not dimmed their memories of last comrades and the horrors of war. These are the extraordinary experiences of ordinary men - and they strike to the heart.
