Author Talk - Jonathan King

Council Presents a Talk By 

Jonathan King introducing
Gallipoli Diaries
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli, war historian Jonathan King has gathered together an unequalled series of extracts from letters and diaries, written by hundreds of Anzacs at Gallipoli, accounting for every one of the 240 days of the eight-month campaign — and even identifying the actual days of the week. Reading the men’s own words, including misspellings and mistakes, we share in the soldiers’ experience. 100 years after the 25 April 1915 landing, the Gallipoli story is told day by day using the words of the diggers, drivers, soldiers, and war correspondents at the front-line.
