282 pp, 10" H. B&w and colour photographs. Map endpapers. "In the Beach Cemetery, Anzac, on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey lie the remains of Private John 'Simpson' and his donkey, Duffy. For three weeks, until they both were killed on 19 May, 1915, Simpson (whose real name was Kirkpatrick) and Duffy moved wounded men from the front lines to the army hospital a mile away. Two young brothers, Major P.K. Kennedy and Major D.P. Kennedy of Guelph, Ontario, fought side by side in France during World War II. They died in battle within two days of each other in September 1944. Their remains lie in the Calais Canadian War Cemetery, one of 2,500 cemeteries built and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. John Simpson and the Kennedys are among the 1,750,000 Commonwealth citizens who lost their lives during the two World Wars of the 20th century. These men and women now lie in the immaculate cemeteries of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, located in 140 countries as far flung as Belgium, Papua New Guinea, and India. (This) is the definitive guide to these cemeteries and to the almost 200 war memorials constructed by the Commission." Minor soiling mark on top of text block, tiny dent on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling/creasing, small scuff mark on spine, light rubbing.
