Author(s): Richard Stowers
This is a book that clearly and conscisely sets out New Zealand's involvement from the first declaration of war until the final exacuation 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. Moving and detailed, this record of our part in the Gallipoli campaign has a surprising wealth of photography to bring history to life. Stowers was inspired by a Gallipoli veteran neighbour he knew when a teenager and his research on a great uncle who died in the campaign. The visual archive he has gathered contributes greatly to the success of Bloody Gallipoli.
