Gallipoli : The Western Australian Story

Author(s): Wesley Olson


Wes Olson's Gallipoli is a vital contribution to Western Australian history. It is also about an eclectic group of brave, ordinary men who came together on the shores of Gallipoli to help pioneer the ANZAC spirit as their legacy. The story of their deployment is recounted largely in the words of the soldiers themselves. Olson introduces, among others, the larrikin Ben Bailey, heroic Douglas Barrett-Lennard, resourceful John Simpson, and future acclaimed author Albert Facey. He allows you to tread in the shadowy footsteps of the soldiers through each painstaking battle for ground, encompassing everything from minor skirmishes to major encounters, during which many of these men would lose their lives.
