Publishers Description: The landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 25 April 1915 represented the greatest amphibious operation carried out during World War I. This book tells the story of the 39 men whose bravery on the battlefield was rewarded by the Victoria Cross - the highest military honour - among them the wars first Australian VC, the first New Zealand VC, and first Royal Marine VC. Although the total is far smaller than the number awarded on the Western Front, it represents the highest number of VCs won in any other theatre of war. The accounts of those awarded the VC, gleaned from diaries, letters and contemporary reports written by recipients or eyewitnesses, are arranged chronologically, so offering a new perspective on the course of the campaign. The book is also illustrated with over 100 paintings, photographs and sketches.
