Game to the Last - 11th Australian Infantry Battalion At Gallipoli by J. Hurst
A highly regarded history about the men of the 11th Battalion AIF from formation in Western Australia to the end of the Gallipoli Campaign. Game To the Last casts its net wide to find and tell these men’s stories and is the culmination of many years’research. Author James Hurst has visited the men’s training grounds and battlefields, homes and graves. Many previously unpublished personal accounts provide the heart of the narrative, while extensive research provides context and colour. This is a story about sons, brothers, husbands who became soldiers in a bloody war on foreign soil. Their experiences are documented and retold with admiration and respect, and remind the reader of the human face of war.
