Across the Bar - The Story of Simpson, the Man with the Donkey : Australia and Tyneside's Great Military Hero

Author(s): Tom Curran


The first full biography of the Gallipoli hero John Simpson Kirkpatrick, told like a novel but with facts and backgrounds thoroughly researched, from his childhood in Shields, UK, to soldiers' memories of the first month on Gallipoli. With photographs and maps, letters, footnotes, bibliography and index. The author's interest in Simpson arose from similarities in his own childhood on Tyneside and his experiences in charge of an Australian medical unit in Vietnam.

1994. Reprint. A near fine copy only marked by rubbing to the spine ends. The d/w is also near fine with light shelf rubbing.
