The battle for Lone Pine – an event that has gone down in Australia’s military history as one of the darkest periods of World War I for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

Described as “four days of hell in the heart of Gallipoli”, the fierce assault on Lone Pine over four days in August 1915 was essentially a diversion tactic – and it was one that saw thousands of lives lost. In the end however, seven Australians were awarded the prestigious Victoria Cross for their heroic actions – the highest number ever awarded to an Australian division for one action.

While it may have been only one action, it was an extraordinary one, and so the legend lives on. In his book The Battle for Lone Pine, biological anthropologist David W. Cameron devotes every single word, personal account and photograph to the courage of the Anzac individuals who undertook this exceptional diversion assault in the most horrid conditions imaginable. Drawing on first-hand records such as diary entries and letters sent home by the soldiers, Cameron tells the stories of diggers, nurses, engineers, commanders and many more.

This powerfully written account tells in depth the story of the souls that now lay at rest in Gallipoli’s Lone Pine Cemetery and Memorial, and is a testament to why thousands gather at Gallipoli every year to honour the Anzacs.

The Battle For Lone Pine features:
  • Paperback, 351 pages.
  • The stories of the diggers, engineers, nurses, sappers, commanders and more, drawn from personal diary entries, letters and hand-written accounts.
  • Captioned historic photographs at centre for reference.
