Description

The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 played an important part in making New Zealand the nation it is today.  The heavy sacrifice of life affected the country for generations, and our annual remembrances on Anzac Day are still dominated by those battles.

Terry Kinloch tells the story through the eyes of the men of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade, who fought at Gallipoli from May to December 1915.  He has thoroughly researched their letters and diaries, cleverly weaving their eyewitness comments into his text.  Much of this material has not been published before; the result is a book that reads with the immediacy of actually being there.

Heavily illustrated with original photographs, Echoes of Gallipoli is the ideal book for anyone wanting understand what it was like to be a young soldier in 1915, what really happened at Gallipoli and the impact these events had on one of our finest fighting formations.

Open daily from 10am to 4pm (except Christmas Day)
