Summary
One of the greatest tragedies in Australian military history occurred at Gallipoli on 7 August 1915, when hundreds of Australian light horsemen were repeatedly ordered to charge the massed rifles and machine guns of the Turks. In this classic book, Memorial historian Peter Burness describes the formation, training and character of the Light Horse regiments, and profiles the officers involved. His vivid account of the battle includes careful consideration of how the suicidal charges were allowed to continue when all hope of success was lost. First published in 1996, this new edition includes additional information that has come to light, as well as new maps and photographs
