The Landing in the Dawn: 13 04   The Land 5ad33337b76bc
Dissecting a Legend - The Landing at Anzac, Gallipoli,
25 April 1915

James Hurst

 

Ahead of ANZAC Day, the Western Australian Genealogical Society is very pleased to host a talk by James Hurst, author of the recently released book ‘The Landing in the Dawn: Dissecting a Legend – The Landing at ANZAC, Gallipoli, 25 April 1915.

The Gallipoli Landing of 25 April 1915 is arguably Australia’s best known battle. It is commemorated each year with a national holiday, services, parades and great media attention. Despite this, the Landing is still a poorly understood battle, coloured by a century of generalisation, misinformation, assumption, folklore, myth and legend.

James Hurst has undertaken a detailed re-examination and reconstruction of the Landing, focussing on the experiences of the 11th Battalion. His approach was to use veteran accounts, supported by a range of sources, in a way that elevates participant’s accounts from anecdote to eyewitness account, thereby providing a new and important perspective on this historic battle.
