ABBEY'S CHOICE OCTOBER 2014 ----- A beautifully produced, lavishly illustrated commemorative volume drawing on the Memorial's unique collection of Gallipoli-related objects, photographs, artworks, diaries, letters, maps and personal memorabilia.

This landmark publication commemorates the centenary of the Great War's Gallipoli campaign, 25 April 1915 to 9 January 1916. ANZAC Treasures approaches the subject of Gallipoli not only from a military perspective but also in terms of its social impact and its role in commemoration and nation building. It does so through the Memorial's immensely rich and varied National Collection, which provides a tangible link to ANZAC and gives an unparalleled insight into its many facets. The legend and reality of ANZAC are encapsulated within the relics, photographs, artworks, documentary records, personal diaries and letters that are displayed to dramatic and moving effect in a beautifully designed and produced commemorative volume.

Dr Peter Pedersen, formerly Head of the Research Centre at the Australian War Memorial, is one of Australia's leading military historians. He has written eight books on the First World War and led many battlefield tours to Gallipoli, the Western Front and other battlefields in Europe and Asia. Dr Pedersen is currently consultant historian to the Australian Department of Veterans' Affairs.
