'In Jonathan King's Gallipoli Diaries we share the experiences of the diggers from day one ... It is a story that is spoken in the sometimes halting words of the soldiers and therein lies its power. There is much here to enlarge our understanding of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign -- not least the appalling conditions in the trenches, the daily grind of water carrying, poor food, flies and death.'--Christopher Bantick "Books + Publishing "
[A] comprehensive history of the whole of the Gallipoli campaign ... Some notable Australian writers are among the many letter-writers and diarists and their writing skills stand out ... King starts the book with some thoughts about why Australia as a nation celebrates what was, after all, a crushing defeat.'--Nick Goldie "Cooma-Monaro Express "
