Description

‘Plenty of opportunity to buy raki’ was one of many surprises for Australian soldiers captured at Gallipoli. Kismet identifies sixty-seven of them and, using information gleaned from Australian, British and Turkish archives, recounts their stories of capture and experiences at camps across Turkey. The life in some camps, particularly for officers, challenges the myth that the lot of the prisoner was one of constant suffering and hardship. The research for this book took ten years and included a trek of 8,000 kilometres across Turkey to locate the various sites.

A prize-winning author, Jennifer Lawless has also been a recipient of a Churchill Fellowship for research in the teaching of History.
