Gallipoli - The Fatal Shore, Harvey Broadbent
7 Harvey Broadbent Gallipoli - The Fatal Shore
Viking 228718 Australia 2005 0670040851 / 9780670040858 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine This book by Harvey Broadbent, a leading authority on the Gallipoli campaign and producer of the acclaimed ABC documentary Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore, seeks to convey the story of Gallipoli to Australians of all ages. On 25 April, 1915, Allied troops stormed the cliffs of Gallipoli. Twenty-eight thousand Australians were killed and wounded in the bloody, eight-month campaign. The raging battles of the Landing, the desperate assault on Lone Pine, the gallant but futile charge at the Nek, are all engraved on the national psyche. Gallipoli is now regarded as a defining episode in Australian history. It is an extraordinary story of determination and courage, as the intrepid and resourceful Anzacs displayed the spirit that was to distinguish them on the Western Front as the Empire's most formidable offensive troops. 312 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Australian::Australian War; Military & Warfare; Military. ISBN: 0670040851.

Tobruk, Peter Fitzsimons
16 Peter Fitzsimons Tobruk
HarperCollins 244866 Australia 2006 First Edition 0732276454 / 9780732276454 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good The number 1 non-fiction bestseller. More than 100,000 copies sold! 'What we have, we hold' MOttO OF AUStRALIA'S 2/17tH BAttALION In the tradition of his bestselling Kokoda, Peter FitzSimons, Australia's most beloved popular historian, focuses on one of the seminal moments in Australian history: the Battle of tobruk in 1941, in which more than 15 000 Australian troops - backed by British artillery - fought in excruciating desert heat through eight long months, against Adolf Hitler's formidable Afrika Korps. During the dark heart of World War II, when Hitler turned his attention to conquering North Africa, a distracted and far-fl ung Allied force could not give its all to the defence of Libya. So the job was left to the roughest, toughest bunch that could be mustered: the Australian Imperial Force. the AIF's defence of the harbour city of tobruk against the Afrika Korps' armoured division is not only the stuff of Australian legend, it is one of the great battles of all time, as against the might of General Rommel and his Panzers, the Australians relied on one factor in particular to give them the necessary strength against the enemy: mateship. Drawing on extensive source material - including diaries and letters, many never published before - this extraordinary book, written in Peter FitzSimons' highly readable style, is the definitive account of this remarkable chapter in Australia's history. Foreword by Manfred Rommel. 579 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Australian::Australian War; Military & Warfare; Australian::Australian History. ISBN/EAN: 9780732276454. Inventory No: 244866.
