Most Australian have heard of Lone Pine Too few know whyOver four days in August 1915 Australians and Turks were thrown into some of the fiercest fighting of the war on a small lateau in Gallipoli known as Lone Pine Thousands of lives were lost Seven of Australia's nine Gallipoli VCs were earned during brutal hand to hand combat in dark tunnels and. ,
It wasLike so many Australians I had relatives who served in World War I None of THOSE WHO RETURNED EVER SPOKE WITHIN who returned ever spoke within hearing of what their experiences My grandfather s service medals were still in the boxes they were delivered in when he died in 1969 I have read about Gallipoli and the Western Front but I knew very little about the battle for Lone PineIn this book Mr Cameron writes of the reparations for Lone Pine of each day of the battle and the aftermath He writes of the brutal hand to hand combat of the
