A good read with some interesting photos, the book tells two stories. First it tells the story of the Australian Light Horse during WWI and it also tells the story of the Authors during their trip to the Middle East to go over the same ground. A very human story and a nice read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522857302, Paperback)

Almost a century after the Australian Light Horse cavalry and infantry fought a series of epic and bloody battles against the Turkish Army across the deserts of the Middle East, the steps of the men and boys who fought there are retraced in this extraordinary book. From the enemy trenches where they charged the Turks on horseback, to the narrow mountain passes—where, exhausted, they slept in their saddles in retreat—this account journeys to the hostile and lonely places where soldiers lost and buried their mates. Through battlefields still littered with shrapnel, bullet casings, and even the odd human bone, this part travelogue and part history reflects upon the collision of the turbulent Middle Eastern politics with the past.

Almost a century after the Australian Light Horse fought a series of epic and bloody battles against the Turkish Army across the deserts of the Middle East, Paul Daley and Mike Bowers retrace the steps of the men and boys who fought there.
