This is the story of the writers who went to Gallipoli.

The reporters who did not shut up.

 It has been said that truth is the first casualty of war. It was never more accurate than during the audacious Gallipoli campaign of 1915, where the Allied forces attempted to secure Constantinople by way of seizing the Dardanelles from the Ottoman Empire. Deadline Gallipoli brings together the high-octane drama of the battlefront and the personal journeys of the soldiers who have signed up for a war they believe will be glorious. It is the untold story of the journalists – Charles Bean, Ellis Ashmead Bartlett, Phillip Schuler& Keith Murdoch – who find themselves appalled by how the battle is being managed. They are flawed human beings, workaholics, and womanisers, But each is profoundly affected by the bravery and wholesale slaughter he witnesses. As the atrocities and horror mount, the journalists are subjected to government censorship and find themselves unable to report the truth they nevertheless have to bear witness to. Though it is understood that truth may sometimes be a necessary casualty in war, the futility and carnage starts to weigh heavily on them.Some of them mount an offensive of their own with extraordinary results. These are the first truly embedded war correspondents whose actions and defiance ignite a change in the campaign’s course and whose commitment to the stories of fighting men turn it from a strategic failure into legend.
