This kind review was left on Amazon by Watson’s Pier reader Serge on 22nd April 2015:


“Joshua Funder has beautifully interwoven historic facts about one of the defining moments in Australia’s young history, with a recreation of events – vividly brought to life through the central character, Stanley Watson, the author’s great-grand father. Watson played a pivotal role in ensuring tens of thousands of Anzacs were evacuated from Gallipoli with no loss of life – an extraordinary outcome, given the impossible circumstances. While I can’t even try to fathom what those that fought at Gallipoli experienced, Funder’s storytelling provides a powerful glimpse into their harrowing world. It is a sobering and timely reminder of why we must continue to cherish the Anzac legacy. A wonderful read.”
