Product Overview

The donkey's life was carting rocks and big bags of manure. And then he met the men who would change his world...

Jack Simpson's code is simple: do your best. But his training as a stretcher-bearer hasn't prepared him or his mates for the horror of the ANZAC landing on the well-defended shore of Gallipoli Peninsula. War is not the adventure they expected.

Carrying a wounded soldier down to the beach on his shoulders, Jack finds a donkey, who miraculously survived being thrown overboard as the tropp ships sailed away. Jack and the donkey form a partnership that will become famous...

This enthralling novel is based on the amazing lives of three true ANZAC legends - and on the deeds of lesser-known but equally heroic stretcher-bearers...Jackie French has once again turned history into a fascinating read.
