Not the most easiest of reads but rewarding with details and stories not previously well known. I did find that a lack of maps, photos and diagrams made it hard to get a measure of the scale of things. I found it wrtten in an essay style format. This book does have a lot of reference to the mining operations that took place which would make it a good reference for when the film Beneath Hill 60 comes out this year.

Excellent coverage of an important post at Anzac and the men who manned the position. First book that I have read that doesn't eulogise the Australian contribution completely. He calls it as it was and comments on what each grouping found when they took over their turn at the post. He did convey the precarious nature of the position especially with the advent of winter approaching.
