I'll be watching. DH gave me the Peter Fitzsimmon's book Gallipoli for Christmas. It is really interesting, but quite upsetting.

Nope - As much as I would like to I find it too hard to watch any war movies , it makes me sad, my dad was conscripted to Vietnam at 21 and he experienced things no one at that age should ( and is still suffering nearly 45 years later ) plus I bawled through the first Gallipoli movie as it just is too sad to realise all those young men were pretty much given a death sentence

@Elijahs Mum ... thats how I feel! that they went to fight for king and country but so much else(political ) went on without regards to those young mens lives!!! just ...the emoitons that I imagine that they and their families would have experinced is so painful... I'm sorry to hear you father went through such a hard time... I have met lots of retunred soldiers from afganistan and iraq (as part of my work) and the number of them that are now going through depression/PTSD/anxiety from what they had expereinced is heart breaking..

No, the history is fascinating but just too distressing.
Wars mess people up good and proper.

Opening scene done, not sure if I can watch anymore. Might just stick with the book at least it isn't so graphic in my mind.

I was watching I but have just gone to bed- only because it was getting too late for me.
It was distressing but I expected that.
I love history, Australian history... And I know the story of Gallipoli is a big part of it, so I want/ need to know more about it (I know the general story but want to fill in gaps) - I am hoping an encore will screen later this week

I have recorded it and am looking forward to watching it yet I'm not sure if I want to iykwim? I went to the ANZAC service in Gallipoli in 2010 which was a MASSIVE eye opener for me!
