The story of Simpson and his donkey is one of the enduring legends of the Gallipoli campaign. Generations of school children have learned how Simpson carried out his daily mission of mercy to his wounded comrades until struck down by a sniper's bullet on 19th Mar 1915. His story has become, over the 80 years since his death, a national symbol of the spirit of Anzac - because it reflects those Australian qualities of sacrifice and mateship that were forged on the beaches and hills of Gallipoli.

'The Body Snatchers' tells the story of the brave doctors, stretcher bearers, drivers and nursing orderlies who made up the 3rd Field Ambulance. The book traces their story through the battlefields of Gallipoli, France and Belgium. The work of Simpson is a perpetual reminder of the heroic devotion to duty by the stretcher bearer whilst under enemy fire.

Now in its second edition, this book provides new insights into the work of what was probably Australia's most famous non-combatant unit during the Great War of 1914-1918, and is illustrated with many rare photographs.
