Riassunto: iGame to the Lasti reveals the story of the men of what would become 'one of the finest battalions which served in the war', the West Australian 11th Infantry Battalion, AIF, during the grueling Gallipoli campaign of 1915. The narrative follows the battalion members as they leave their homes and lives in Western Australia, embark for overseas, experience the excitement and boredom of exotic Egypt, and undergo their baptism of fire in the first wave of the Australian and New Zealand landings at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. 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 Many previously unpublished personal accounts provide the heart of the narrative while extensive research provides context and colour.
L'autore: James Hurst is with the Army History Unit, Department of Defence.
