Return to Gallipoli - Walking the Battlefields of the Great War
Bruce Scates, Cambridge University Press, 2006
Paperback, 273 pp.

DESCRIPTION

Every year tens of thousands of Australians make their pilgrimages to Gallipoli, France and other killing fields of the Great War. It is a journey steeped in history. Some go in search of family memory, for others it is a rite of passage, a statement of what it means to be Australian. This book explores the memory of the Great War through the historical experience of pilgrimage. It examines the significance these 'sacred sites' have acquired in the hearts and minds of successive generations, and charts the complex responses of young and old, soldier and civilian, the pilgrims of the 1920s and today's backpacker travellers.

This book gives voice to history, retrieving a bitter-sweet testimony through interviews, surveys and a rich archival record.
