Description - Spirit of Gallipoli by Patrick Lindsay

In The Spirit of Gallipoli Patrick Lindsay explores the source of the Anzac legend as he continues his quest to understand what it means to be Australian. His most recent book, The Essence of Kokoda, is an accessible, distilled version of the remarkable story of the battles that saved Australia during WWII, full of wonderful images and personal stories. In The Spirit of Gallipoli, Patrick again writes for those who would never wade through a fully-fledged history book but who want to understand the remarkable spirit that emerged from a doomed campaign. He digs deep into the bedrock of the Australian character and examines the spirit that sets Australians apart and enables them to so often fight above their weight on the international stage. He places the Gallipoli campaign in context, telling the story through the eyes of those who were there and he delves into the remarkable spirit which sustained the Anzacs as they clung to the ridges in their baptism of fire, half a world from their homelands. The Spirit of Gallipoli is a must-read for all those who want to understand what the Anzac spirit is and where it was forged.
