The Anzacs: An inside view of New Zealanders at Gallipoli
By Auckland War Memorial Museum
Filled with a selection from the Auckland War Memorial Museum's extensive catalogue, with many images never published before, this book sheds new light on New Zealand's Anzac story.
This carefully chosen selection from the Auckland War Memorial Museum’s extensive catalogue, with many images never published before, sheds new light on New Zealand’s Anzac story. Through soldiers’ amateur photography – candid, unassuming, revealing and, at times, haunting – The Anzacs charts life for those who served in Gallipoli: from leaving New Zealand and encountering an unexpected landscape to the realities of combat and dealing with death and loss. It is a book that casts an unstinting eye on the history – and the men who lived it – presenting events as they unfolded through the photographic lens.
The Anzacs is a poignant, true-life account of Gallipoli, captured by those who experienced the war and not merely observed it.
