The story ‘My Gallipoli’ lets you walk the lives of many, without leaving the comfort of your seat. The story begins in Turkey with Shepard Adil Sakin enlisting to defend his homeland, his Gelibolu. As it continues we meet a soldier transporting troops onto the embankment as guns fire; nurses serving in the hospital;  Nepalese Gurkhas; a Chinese-Australian sniper, and many unnamed diggers. This was Gallipoli to all of them.

Starke & Hannaford have done an excellent job in capturing how Gallipoli impacted so many different people in so many different ways.
