This landmark publication commemorates the centenary of World War I's Gallipoli campaign, April 25, 1915, to January 9, 1916. This book approaches the subject of Gallipoli not only from a military perspective, but also in terms of its social impact, and its role in commemoration and nation building. It does so through the Memorial's immensely rich and varied National Collection, which provides a tangible link to ANZAC and gives an unparalleled insight into its many facets. The legend and reality of ANZAC are encapsulated within the relics, photographs, artworks, documentary records, personal diaries, and letters that are displayed to dramatic and moving effect in a beautifully designed and produced commemorative volume.
