8 August 1915. Before dawn, the Wellington Regiment, part of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, commences an offensive to seize Chunuk Bair, a pivotal peak overlooking Gallipoli Bay. As inept British Generals look on from their battleships, the Regiment captures the high ground. With extraordinary courage, the stalwart young Wellingtonians battle to hold off the enemy, firing their rifles and those of their fallen companions until the wood of the stock is too hot to touch. On now till 5 July.
