"The Anzac battlefield on Gallipoli was made for snipers. Scrub, cliffs, spurs and hills meant that both Anzac and Turkish positions often overlooked one another. The unwary or unlucky were prey to snipers on both sides, and the sudden crack of a gunshot and instant death were an ever-present menace."--Publisher ¶ Contents: Ch. 1 Yellow canary -- Ch. 2 Sound the trumpet, beat the drum -- Ch. 3 Prepare for War -- Ch. 4 Mounting up -- Ch. 5 Boots and saddles -- Ch. 6 Salt and sand -- Ch. 7 Snipers rule -- Ch. 8 Hunting the hunters -- Ch. 9 Chatham's Post -- Ch. 10 Midgley's Myrmidons -- ch. 11 Shooting the illegitimates -- Ch. 12 Abdul the Terrible -- Ch. 13 Getting out. ¶  Sniping (Military science) Snipers -- Australia -- Biography.
