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 both action-packed and 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. Including biographies of all the key military figures as well as detail about the preparations for the landing itself, Gallipoli: The Landing dispels many myths associated with the Gallipoli campaign and establishes some of the reasons why the campaign in the Dardanelles eventually failed.
Hugh Dolan is a former intelligence officer with the Royal Australian Air Force. He is the author of 36 Days: The Untold Story behind the Gallipoli Landings (2010), presenter of the documentary Gallipoli From Above (based on material from his book), and general military historian-at-large. Mal Gardiner is a comic artist and a 20-year veteran of the Royal Australian Navy.
