This is a nice little book, which describes the attachment that Gallipoli has in the Psyche of the Australian nation. It has some personal experiences of the author's tour of the peninsula which would be of benefit to other travellers. He also adds a "Survival List" of kit to be brought. All in all a good read.
 

Synopsis

This travel memoir reveals the thoughts and experiences of one of thousands of young Australians and New Zealanders who make the trek to the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey every year. Within the scope of his personal journey, the author also offers a brief history of the area and the famous World War I battle that has made this a significant place for Australian and New Zealand national pride, smattered with practical tips for those who wish to make the journey themselves.
