Game to the Last reveals the story of the men who would become "one of the finest battalions which served in the war", the West Australian 11th Infantry Battalion, AIF, during the grueling Gallipoli Campaign of 1915. The narrative follows the battalion members as they leave their homes and lives in Western Australia, embark for overseas, experience the excitement and boredom of arid and exotic Egypt, and undergo their baptism of fire in the first wave of the Australian and New Zealand landings at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.

Game to the Last gives you a ton of detail on the soldiers who made up the 11th Australian Inf. Battalion and their fate. The horrors of Gallipoli are clearly shown, and just how unlikely you were to have joined up and made through the fighting, much less all the way to 1918. Not shocking at all how after months of malnutrition and fighting, the men just wore down.

Just under 10K of locations, with 3K of footnotes and bibliography.

I was able to pick it up when it was free.
