Centenary News Review:
'From a pile of letters discovered in a antique shop Peter Doyle has brought to life the experiences of two brothers from London at Gallipoli. The letters alone make this book a compelling read, but the accompanying notes make it informative as well as emotive. This is a book for anyone interested in the highs and lows, and triumphs and struggles of ordinary soldiers as they passed their days in the heat of Suvla Bay.'
