Description
 
2005 marked 90 years since the beginning of the Gallipoli campaign, in recent years, as the last veterans have faded away, there has been increasing interest in this First World War campaign, this resurgence has been shown in books on the subject mostly from the Australian and British viewpoint.

With 'Bloody Gallipoli', Richard Stowers has created a highly readable and often tragic account of this doomed campaign from the New Zealand perspective.

This is a book that clearly and concisely sets out New Zealand's involvement from the first declaration of war until the final evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Detailed within are the battles that have long haunted New Zealand military history such as the Daisy Patch, Hill 60 and of course Chunuk Bair. Drawing on personal diaries and reproducing over 350 photographs, this book will appeal to a wide range of people, from military history buffs to family researchers.

One of the treasures of this book is the detailed casualty list that for the first time allows the reader to comprehend, battle by battle, the enormous sacrifice New Zealand towns and communities made in supporting Great Britain's efforts to 'knock Turkey out of the war'. This book provides new insights into a campaign that 90 years on shows no sign of losing its poignancy to new generations of New Zealanders and serves to reinforce the contention that our nationhood was first forged on the hills and ridges of 'Bloody Gallipoli'.
