Completely reconstructed for the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing with new materials added, these include Frequently Asked Questions, such as Who was John Simpson, the man with the donkey? Did the Anzacs land in the wrong place? What did the Anzacs eat and drink at Gallipoli? Were Anzac biscuits invented at Gallipoli?
New materials have been added on the bitterly fought battles of the campaign from May to August, including the second Battle of Krithia, the Turkish attack of 19 May, the August Offensive and the Battle of Lone Pine and Hill 60, along with a completely reconstructed Gallipoli timeline of events.
Also included is a detailed animation of the Australian submarine AE2's voyage that entered the Dardanelles to disrupt Turkish sea communication on 25 April 1915, based on Lieutenant-Commander Henry Stoker's reports. View a photo album of the Gallipoli nurses and see the conditions in which they worked on Lemnos Island.
