This book describes in some detail the actions just prior and after the landings on the beaches around Helles by the British 29 Division on those fateful days of the 25 and 26 April 1915. By using graphic eye witness accounts, contemporary sketches, maps and photographs, the book brings alive the courage and self-sacrifice of the battalions involved, including the story of the SS River Clyde at V Beach and the actions of those fifteen men who were awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry during the two days of 25 and 26 April which epitomize the bravery of the entire landing forces. A full day Car Tour is included, together with battlefield walks relating to each of the five beaches, useful practical advice, and descriptions of Memorials and Cemeteries which should enable visitors to appreciate the significance and relevance of what happened during that particular time.
