My Gallipoli

Starke, Ruth / Hannaford, Robert

From the shores of Anzac Cove to the heights of Chunuk Bair, from Cape Helles to Gurkha Bluff, the Gallipoli Peninsula was the place where thousands of men from sixteen nations fought, suffered, endured or died during the eight months of occupation in 1915.

The strong atmospheric artwork of renowned artist, Robert Hannaford is a perfect complement to Starke’s sweeping text.
