John Gallishaw (1890 - 1968) was born in St John's in 1914, when the First World War began; he was a student at Harvard University in Boston. He returned to Newfoundland where he joined the Newfoundland Regiment. He subsequently served in Gallipoli. This book is his vivid, compelling and fascinating personal account. The Gallipoli Campaign of 1915 was Newfoundland Regiment's first exposure to the horrors of World War One. The Gallipoli Campaign happened almost one year before the carnage that befell the Newfoundland Regiment on July 1, 1916, at Beaumont Hamel.
