Ashmead-Bartlett was the son of a British MP who became a famous war correspondent, covering conflicts from Asia to Morocco. He wrote his first despatches about the Gallipoli landing that appeared in Australian newspapers. His reporting was a sensation and set the name under adistinctive Australian sense of nationalism at the time. Whilst Charles Beans offcial war stories kept the name alive, it was Ashmead-Bartlett who lit the spark! This amazing story will take you inside the mind of this Englishman, who became the unexpected correspondent responsible for igniting our passion in the Gallipoli legend. He too was on the frontline, surviving a submarine torpedo attack on the Battleship Majestic off the shores of Gallipoli. There was no doubting his bravery, his reporting expertise and his influence on our nation. pp. 285 #0716 SCARCE
