|Anzac Voices is the story of Gallipoli, told by the Diggers who lived through it: regular troops, senior commanders ,stretcher bearers, signal operators, a nurse and a Turkish general, as well as Australia’s official war correspondent, Charles Bean. It is an ABC Classics CD 481-1626, two disc set, and we will hear disc one on April 30th.
Recorded between 1953 and 1990 ,the compelling and deeply emotional first- hand accounts drawn from ABC Archives recall in graphic detail the circumstances and events of the Gallipoli campaign, from the innocence of enlistment to the horror of the landing and-for those who lived to tell their story- the bitter relief of homecoming.
The two CD set is available from ABC Shops and we believe every Australian home should have a copy for posterity!
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE!! THE 30th , NOT THE 23rd , AS YOU WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT!!
