A review of Watson’s Pier from Amazon by Dr G.D. Putt:

“Josh Funder’s story of the evacuation of Gallipoli told through his great grandfather, Stanley Holm Watson, moved me profoundly. Here at last I can see something substantial, something truly worth celebrating about the Anzac campaign – saving lives rather than men being ordered to profligately throw them away. So, December 20th rather than April 25th is something for Australians to really celebrate and I hope young Australians fired by the Anzac myth/legend read his book widely and bring some balance into their celebration of Anzac Day. My congratulations to the author in bringing such a great story to light.”
