The story of a defining campaign and a monumental exhibition.
A combination of the creative artistry of Wētā Workshop and expert historical research, Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War is one of Te Papa’s most popular visitor experiences.
This engaging companion book helps readers comprehend the human scale of the Gallipoli campaign and gives insights into the making of the ground-breaking exhibition. The conflict is described in major new essays, as well as through the experiences of six ordinary New Zealanders, the remarkable ‘giants’ of The Scale of Our War.
With fold-out images, behind-the-scenes detail of how the giants were built and essays by those involved in the exhibition, this book is both a souvenir of Gallipoli: Scale of our War and an engaging way for readers to revisit the Gallipoli campaign.
By Christopher Pugsley, Michael Keith and Puawai Cairns, with a foreword by Richard Taylor
