Grouped in chronological order, the correspondencegathered from archives, newspapers, and family collectionsdetails the campaign’s harrowing conditions and key events, from preparation and landing on the Ottoman peninsula to the December withdrawal. In these epistles, the intense emotions of the men who survived the trenches are made known, whether it be jubilation at ground gained or sorrow at the passing of friends.
