Title:Voices of Gallipoli
David Ling Publishing, Auckland, 2001. Reprint in very tidy condition. Review stamp inside front cover. In the 1980s Maurice Shadbolt talked to many of the small and diminishing band of veterans with vivid memories of the long, futile and ferocious battles that took so many New Zealand lives. Shadbolt tells their stories with skill and lucidly backgrounds the campaign they survived. It is a remarkable document: the distilled memories of a dozen old men who innocently set out to do battle as loyal sons of the British Empire and returned home betrayed, embittered and disillusioned - and New Zealanders.
