Gallipoli: Reckless Valour

By Nicolas Brasch

They were young men full of practical jokes and hell-bent on having a good time. What would become of these larrikins?

Every year, thousands of young people make a pilgrimage to Turkey, to visit a place where men fought and died almost 100 years ago. Why does ANZAC Day still hold such significance for Australians and New Zealanders? Why did the ANZAC’s land at Gallipoli? Why, in fact, were Australians at war in the first place?

  • Vivid and thought-provoking history, incorporating the letters and memoirs of the young men who were there.
  • Fact boxes, maps and timelines will engage readers of all levels.
