Gallipoli: VCs of the First World War

Author(s): Stephen Snelling

World War I

The landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 25 April 1915 represented the greatest amphibious operation carried out during World War I. This book tells the story of the 39 men whose bravery on the battlefield was rewarded by the Victoria Cross - the highest military honour - among them the war's first Australian VC, the first New Zealand VC, and first Royal Marine VC. Although the total is far smaller than the number awarded on the Western Front, it represents the highest number of VCs won in any other theatre of war.
