Gallipoli: The Final Battles and Evacuation at Anzac provides a detailed account of the final battles at Anzac viewed from both sides of the trenches. This is the first book since Charles Bean's Official History to provide a detailed narrative of the bloody and tragic battle for Hill 60, along with the ongoing tunnelling war which raged until the final days of the campaign. Australian author David Cameron’s meticulous research and use of firsthand accounts including letters, diaries and interviews, many previously unpublished, enables him to convey the confusion of battle while also telling an absorbing story with powerful emotional impact.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    The author does a wonderful job of taking the first hand information (mostly Allies, but some Turkish) and let’s them tell the story. Several of the accounts come from people who’s letters were found after being killed. It’s really well done. The agony of long-term Australians in leaving their dead comrades…So difficult to do. If you have any interest in history, easy to recommend. The poor quartermaster who had to destroy the rum….. The ending is perfect
