318 pp, small 4to (10 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0771592396 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Alan Moorehead's 'Gallipoli' is surely one of the most moving and absorbing books ever written. It is not simply a war book, an a ccount of a military campaign - the narrative takes on the quality of a literary masterpiece, the suspense of a thriller, and the purgative powers of Shakespearean tragedy. From the first major assault on the Narrows in March 1915, until the f i n a l evacuation of troops in January 1916, the campaign was one long saga of appalling blunders, missed opportunities, exhaustion and frustration. So often, for just a few moments, in a vacuum of indecision, all depended upon the inspiration of a s in gl e act of faith, and such acts were usually not forthcoming. And yet, hemmed into those few terrible areas of beach and hillside and permanently under shellfire, the most formidable acts of courage and imagination occured, not leas t am ong th e A nza cs . Alan Moorehead presents Gallipoli justly and compassionately. He describes the life each individual carved out for himself during those nine long months. He gives the overview and the personal view. At times he makes i t almo st p alat able . A nn Moyal has enhanced Moorehead's text by presenting much new and important information, together with relevant biographical detail, in boxes throughout the text. These, along with maps and poignant photographs, drawings an d pai nting s, br ing t he ch ara cters, the setting and the spirit of Gallipoli to life." Minor browning and wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light edge wear, minor rubbing and soiling. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling at top re ar edge, minor rubbin g.
