Comments: The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 played an important part in making New Zealand the nation it is today. The heavy sacrifice of life has affected the country for generations, and annual rememberances of Anzac Day are still dominated by these battles ninety years ago. It has been over twenty years since the last book to tell the full story of Gallipoli from the New Zealand perspective; now we have a fresh new account that adds significantly to our understanding of what happened during those fateful months.
Lieutenant-Colonel Terry Kinloch has held a commission in the New Zealand Army since 1983. He has completed operational tours in Bougainville, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Egypt. He spent much if his regimental career in Queen Alexandra’s Mounted Rifles, an armoured unit that is the last Regular Force link to New Zealand’s horsemounted units. This is his second book about the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade in the First World War, completing the story begun in the author’s acclaimed first book Echoes of Gallipoli. Lieutenant-Colonel Kinloch was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) in 2006. He has recently returned from a posting in Washington D.C., as New Zealand’s staff officer in the American, British, Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand Armies Program. He lives in Wellington, New Zealand.
