Gallipoli Victoria Cross, The Price of Valour, The Triumph and Tragedy of Hugo Throssell VC



Gallipoli was a campaign that has been condemned as a useless waste of lives and resources in a war that is generally regarded as a costly battle of attrition. For any one action at Gallipoli to be seen as a significant disaster, it had to be unusually costly and pointless. The author tells the story of Hugo Throssell, son of a former Premier of Western Australia, a volunteer and recipient of the award of a Victoria Cross. Highly Recommended.
