Secondhand. Very good condition. A bend to tip of top right book corner and a crease on the back bottom book cover.
One of the greatest tragedies in Australian military history occurred at Gallipoli on 7th August 1915 when hundreds of Australian Light Horsemen were repeatedly ordered to charge the massive riffles and machine guns of the Turkish. The charge at The Nek came to epitomise both the futility and courage of the Gallipoli campaign.
Peter Burness describes the formation, training and character of the Light Horse regiments and profiles the officers involved. This edition includes updated text from the original 1996 version.
