Summary
Australian civilians worked for decades supporting the survivors and orphans of the Armenian Genocide massacres. 24 April 1915 marks the beginning of two great epics of the First World War. It was the day the allied invasion forces set out for Gallipoli; and it marked the beginning of what became the Genocide of the Ottoman Empire's Armenians. For the first time, this book tells the powerful, and until now neglected, story of how Australian humanitarians helped people they had barely heard of and never met, amid one of the twentieth century's most terrible human calamities. With 50 000 Armenian- Australians sharing direct family links with the Genocide, this has become truly an Australian story

"For the Anzacs and their comrades, 25 April was the beginning of an eight-month ordeal, a campaign that would see the deaths of 40,000 invaders and more than twice as many defenders. It would end in a defeat extolled as the making of the Anzac nations and an Ottoman victory that gave Turkey a leader who created the Turkish nation. One of the ways we tell this story is by highlighting Australians who became part of the epic of the Middle East during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: 'Plevna' Ryan, Charles Bean, Thomas White, Stanley Savige, Isobel Hutton, Cecilia John, James Cresswell, Edith Glanville and many others. This book tells the story of how Australians and Armenians came together, during the Great War and in the decades that followed. That story is now a part of Australia's history."--Prologue
