In 1915, a combined British, Australian and New Zealand force attacked Turkey in the Battle of Gallipoli. It was a disaster, and the Australians and New Zealanders blamed - and still blame - boneheaded British leadership. The story is here told through the experiences of two young Australian athletes who volunteer for the army in time for the ill-fated campaign.
