Stanley, Peter: Quinn’s Post

Stanley, Peter

Quinn’s Post, Anzac, Gallipoli, Allen & Unwin, Crows Nest, NSW, 2005; also available as e-book

‘Delving into the history of Quinn’s as a key part of the Anzac line, this book illuminates what it was like to live, fight and die there for a succession of Australian, New Zealand and British units. It tells the story of Quinn’s, drawing substantially on the words of those who served there. Peter Stanley concentrates on the dramatic first months of the campaign, but also devotes attention to the New Zealand period (June-July), to the underground war and to the forgotten months in the autumn and winter when the 17th Battalion held the post, exposing some aspects for the first time.’ (blurb)
