The White Gurkhas: History of the 2nd Australian Infantry Brigade


by Ron Austin

The detailed history of the 2nd Australian Infantry Brigade at Krithia, Gallipoli during World War 1. The 2nd Australian Infantry Brigade comprised the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Infantry Battalions.

In the space of an hour, the brigade had lost 1000 to both dead and wounded. This heroic, but costly charge was described by several survivors as ‘sheer murder’.┬áThese battles, both of which form the foundation of the Anzac tradition, are vividly retold here through the diaries and letters of officers and men of the four Victorian Battalions which made up the Brigade.
