Description
 
"Game to the Last' reveals the story of the men and what would have become 'one of the finest battalions which served in the war': Western Australia's 11th Infantry Battalion, AIF, during the gruelling Gallipoli campaign on 1915.

The narrative follows the battalion members as they leave their homes and lives in Australia, embark for overseas, experienve the excitment and boredom of arid and exotic Egypt and undergo their baptism of fire in the first wave of the Australia and New Zealand landings at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. They would fight six actions in just over 100 days and endure nearly eight months at Gallipoli.

'Game to the Last' is the culmination of many year's research. It casts its net wide to find and tell these men's stories and reconstruct their battles and experience. Auithor James Hurst has visited the men's training grounds and battlefields, homes and graves. Many previously unpublished personal accounts provide the heart of the narrative, while extensive research provides context and colour. This is a story about sons, brothers, and husbands who became soldiers in abloody war on foreign soil.
