Three journalists, Charles Bean, Ellis Ashmead Bartlett and Phillip Schuler, arrive at Gallipoli with the invading British and Allied troops in 1915. They will report the war but are prevented from getting out the true story of an unfolding disaster. From encampment in Cairo to Anzac Cove to the evacuation, this is the story of journalists who will not accept that truth be the first casualty. This is the story of the men who will not shut up. The actions of these men will help change the course of the campaign, ensure that a strategic disaster becomes a legend of human heroism, and leave an impregnable mark on each of their lives.Written by

A film every young man suffering of the thrill of COD should see, maybe they wouldn't enlist as easily.
A sober description of the terrors of wars, personal and collectively. And also a decent story on how a man is easily sacrificed without being noticed, without being considered as a human being, just a number in the even bigger number of casualties.
Every war, before and after the 1st WW was, and is just marginally different, the rich will sit in safety eagerly sacrificing generations of young men and women while nipping to their tea, then cheering for their victory as if they stood in the trenches sacrificing their life and sanity.
Terrifying, wonderful, and heartbreaking to sum it up, regards a veteran
