The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 played an important part in making New Zealand the nation it is today. The heavy sacrifice of life has affected the country for generations, and annual remembrances of Anzac Day are still dominated by these battles ninety years ago. It has been over twenty years since the last book to tell the full story of Gallipoli from the New Zealand perspective; now we have a fresh new account that adds significantly to our understanding of what happened during those fateful months.
