Gallipoli reminds the reader that history must be constructed from solely factual and verifiable information. This is not only evident in the detailed description of the battle, it is reinforced in the second section of the book wherein the remembrance of the battle by participating nations is discussed at length.

      Gallipoli Diary by John Graham Gillam is one of the many personal narratives written by survivors of this bloody conflict. Published in , when memories of the war were still fresh in the minds of those who had experienced it, it is indeed a slice of history for modern-day readers who encounter it nearly a hundred years later.5/5(2). ‘The Only Woman at Gallipoli’ is his first book. The research became a voyage of discovery – from libraries all over Australia, to Turkey, and unseen diaries and love letters in London's Imperial War Museum and Northern England.

        Although it has some new material on the Turkish side, by and large this Gallipoli is the familiar Australian version and, as such, inferior to Carlyon’s excellent book. Like Taranto, Gallipoli is a two-part town: the modern hub is based on the mainland, while the older centro storico inhabits a small island that juts out into the Ionian Sea. With a raft of serene baroque architecture usurped only by Lecce, it is, arguably, the prettiest of Salento’s smaller settlements.
