Description - Echoes of Gallipoli by Terry Kinloch
The battles on Gallipoli in 1915 were crucial in making New Zealand the nation it is today. The huge sacrifice of life has affected the country for generations. Now a new book will add significantly to our understanding of the events of 1915 on the Gallipoli penisula. Terry Kinloch tells the story with the help of members of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade, who emerged from Gallipoli battered and depleted, but with reputations enhanced. He has thoroughly researched their letters and diaries, and cleverly interspersed their eyewitness comments into his text. The call-up, the sea journey, Egypt, the arrival and all the battles and skirmishes are vividly described here. The result is a remarkable book that reads with the immediacy of actually being there.
