Gallipoli by Jenny MacLeod

Book Description

This new book traces the disparities in the memory of Gallipoli that are evident in the countries that participated in the campaign. It explores the way in which history is written at the personal, local, professional, and national levels. This study tackles key questions about just how the history of any given event comes to be written in a certain way and how very different versions of an event can compete for attention. Often one particular version holds the field drowning out its rivals. The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 serves as an excellent case study through which the process of 'making history' can be observed. Among the case studies are Martin Gilbert on Churchill, Keith Jeffery on Gallipoli and Ireland, and David Dutton on the French view of a campaign in which they were more heavily involved than the Australians. Christopher Pugsley uncovers the reality behind the myths of Anzac, and Keith Grieves writes on the local commemoration of the campaign in Sussex. Other chapters consider the writing of unit histories, the professional study of the campaign in the development of amphibious warfare, the romance of the British cultural history of Gallipoli, and the shifts that are evident in the portrayal of Anzacs in Australian cinema.

Gallipoli by Jenny MacLeod Gallipoli, Hardback (July 2015)

The multi-national story of the Gallipoli campaign - how it was fought, how it has been remembered, and what it has come to mean

Defeat and Memory by Jenny MacLeod Defeat and Memory, Hardback (October 2008)

The legacy of defeat in war reverberates through private and collective memory and remains a sub-text in international relations and political discourse. This book examines the manner in which a series of military defeats have been understood and remembered by individuals and societies in the era of modern industrialised warfare.

Reconsidering Gallipoli by Jenny MacLeod Reconsidering Gallipoli, Paperback (June 2004)

This study broadens the debate over the cultural history of World War I beyond the Western Front, putting Australian dominance of the historiography of Gallipoli into perspective. It explores the cultural history of the 1915 campaign through the books and articles written by men who were there.
