Stout Pair of Boots by Peter Stanley
Book DescriptionAustralians are becoming increasingly fascinated by their military history, and every year greater numbers visit the scenes of the battles commemorated each Anzac Day - Villers-Bretonneux, Long Tan, Kokoda, Gallipoli itself. But what can you learn from visiting a battlefield? And how do you make sure you get the most out of the experience? Peter Stanley, one of Australia's most experienced military historians, a veteran of battlefield research in Borneo and Egypt, Turkey and France, gives wide-ranging and practical hints and tips, including what to take, whether to go alone or in a group, how to stay safe, who to contact before you go, and how to avoid getting sick while you're there. Drawing on his own extensive experience, and that of many of his friends and colleagues, Peter will inspire you to get out of the armchair and walk the ground where Australia's military history was made.

In 1915 about 15,000 Indian troops - two or three times as many as previously thought - served in the dramatic and doomed eight-month Gallipoli campaign. Their part in the invasion of Gallipoli has lain largely unknown since the publication of long disregarded regimental histories and forgotten British officers' memoirs.
