The truth about the assault on Gallipoli is finally being told – panel by panel.
Gallipoli: The Landing takes the events of 25 April 1915 and presents them in a full-colour comic that’s action-packed but historically accurate. Rather than a botched attack planned by indifferent British generals, the Gallipoli campaign was carefully thought out, and included an amphibious attack on the beach by Anzac officers.
Hugh Dolan and Mal Gardiner bring the real story to life, describing the lead-up and the attack on Gallipoli in detail – from both sides of the fighting.
