I finished reading Watson’s Pier, over Easter,– fantastic read–could not put it down! Joshua Funder has managed to give a whole new perspective on the ANZAC story of Gallipoli, capturing both the huge and crass incompetence of the overall leadership and planning, and the inspirational performance of the ANZAC diggers, faced with an impossible and suicidal mission. And through it all—he has woven the major role of great grandfather Stan Watson—what a man! And what amazing vision he had—of zero losses in the evacuation—truly inspirational —though I guess poor private Mayer may have died and been left at ANZAC cove.

A wonderful book – in the very best Funder tradition. They are all great story tellers and raconteurs…..
