It was 1914 and Dusty and Bluey are headed for adventure. They were ANZACS, on their way to the Great War.
Award-winning author Kerry Greenwood explores the themes of bravery, hardship, humour, fear and above all, mateship. The story of Bluey and Dusty is a story of family and friendship. It is the story of Gallipoli.
Beautifully illustrated in water colour by Annie White, this book showcases Annie’s deft touch in revealing human emotions and expression.

Comments about Gallipoli:
As an educator, a great text to keep significant moments in Australia's history 'alive'.
Factually accurate, demonstrating the reality of conflict and war. Exemplifies how the nation developed its culture of mateship and bravery under the most horrendous conditions. Illustrations complement the text perfectly, realistic and honest representation of the time.
