Probably no person saw more of the Anzacs in battle on Gallipoli than C.E.W. Bean. After sailing with the first convoy, he landed with them on that fateful first morning of April 25, 1915, and remained until the evacuation. His diary overflows with powerful descriptions of battle and touching eulogies to the common soldier.
Kevin Fewster is Director of the National Maritime Museum, England, and the co-author of Gallipoli: The Turkish Story. Bean's Gallipoli is a revised edition of his earlier book, Frontline Gallipoli.
