For the entire Anzac campaign, Quinn's Post was central to the defence of the positions at Gallipoli. Its loss would have opened the way to a Turkish assault on the heart of the Anzac areas.

It is one of the most evocative names at Gallipoli along with Anzac Cove, Lone Pine and the Nek. Yet we know very little more about Quinn's than we did in 1924. No one, since the publication of Bean's first two volumes, has studied the significance of the post of what it was like to serve there.

Delving into the history of Quinn's as a key part of the Anzac line, this book illuminates what it was like to live, fight and die there for a succession of Australian, New Zealand and British units. It tells the story of Quinn's, drawing substantially on the words of those who served there. Peter Stanley concentrates on the dramatic first months of the campaign, but also devotes attention to the New Zealand period (June-July), to the underground war and to the forgotten months in the autumn and winter when the 17th Battalion held the post, exposing some aspects for the first time.
