In The Spirit of Gallipoli, Patrick Lindsay explores the source of the Anzac legend as he continues his quest to understand what it means to be Australian.
Patrick writes for those who would never wade through a fully-fledged history book but want to understand the remarkable spirit that emerged from a doomed campaign. He digs deep into the bedrock of the Australian character. He examines the spirit that sets Australians apart and enables them to often fight above their weight on the international stage.
He places the Gallipoli campaign in context, telling the story through the eyes of those who were there, and he delves into the remarkable spirit which sustained the Anzacs as they clung to the ridges in their baptism of fire, half a world from their homelands.
The Spirit of Gallipoli is a must-read for those who want to understand the Anzac spirit and where it was forged. (publisher blurb)
