The Anzacs PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Anzacs free pdf The Gallipoli campaign was one of New Zealand's darkest and most dramatic, one that resulted in a devastating loss of life and cultivated a lasting legacy of sacrifice and nationhood. This carefully chosen selection from the Auckland War Memorial Museum's extensive catalogue, with many images never published before, sheds new light on New Zealand's Anzac story. Through soldiers' amateur photography - candid, unassuming, revealing and, at times, haunting - The Anzacs charts life for those who served in Gallipoli: from leaving New Zealand and encountering an unexpected landscape to the realities of combat and dealing with death and loss. It is a book that casts an unstinting eye on the history - and the men who lived it - presenting events as they unfolded through the photographic lens. The Anzacs is a poignant, true-life account of Gallipoli, captured by those who experienced the war and not merely observed it.

About Auckland War Memorial Museum

Since its foundation in 1852, the Auckland Museum has taken on many roles, including that of a War Memorial to those who served from the Auckland province. The Cenotaph and Halls of Memory dedicated to the fallen soldiers are enhanced by rich collections in the museum itself. These collections range from military uniforms and weaponry to diaries and photographs - all reflecting on the realitities of war, with a strong emphasis on the representation of New Zealanders in conflict. As we mark 100 years since the 25 April landings, Auckland War Memorial Museum continues to link the past to the present day, sharing its collections and maintaining a presence in the lives of both Auckland residents and visitors to our city. It is a cultural icon and a meeting place for both discussion and remembrance.
