Manning Clark's History of Australia has been nominated as the most influential work of non-fiction Australia has produced. As Donald Horne wrote, Clark 'looked for great human issues and presented them as moral dramas'. In this extract from Volume 5, the tragedy of Gallipoli is played out against the broader Australian experience of World War I, as the nation, still in its infancy, struggled to make sense of the terrible conflict in Europe and its costs. Manning Clark On Gallipoli is the first title in the MUP Masterworks series, which celebrates distinguished Australian writers and ideas. This title's release coincides with the ninetieth anniversary commemorations of the landing at Gallipoli.

Manning Clark's six-volume history is one of the masterpieces of Australian writing. It is also one of the most passionately debated visions of Australian history, in which the struggle to realise an Australian nation is played out on an epic scale. A History of Australia: 1888-1945, covers Federation, the Boer War and World War I's Gallipoli. It finishes with the story of an emerging Australian identity at the point of its greatest trial-the outbreak of World War II. This is not a general Australian history-it does not attempt to cover all aspects-and it is not a definitive or quantitative analysis. It is a work of art, a living and breathing account of the remaking of a primitive continent, history come alive.

Manning Clark and Kathleen Fitzpatrick were influential Australian historians; they were both also gifted writers. Their personal letters, published for the first time in Dear Kathleen, Dear Manning, form a revealing and moving collection. They trace the gradual development over forty years of an unlikely, but deep and sympathetic friendship - one which became more and more important to the writers as they moved into old age. Clark's left-wing politics contrasted with Fitzpatrick's staunch liberalism; her privileged background was very different from his more austere upbringing: her stately demeanour was at odds with his studied larrikinism. Manning Clark took to the public stage, while Kathleen Fitzpatrick remained resolutely private. Yet they struck a chord in each other, seeing themselves in some way as 'outsiders'. They were both extraordinarily sensitive and reserved people; notice the delicacy and obliqueness with which they refer to personal problems, and the sympathy they quickly extend for each other's troubles and nervous ills.

Letters from Gallipoli

Letters from Gallipoli offers a powerful first-hand account of a pivotal event in New Zealand's history that will not fail to move and inspire readers. The campaign at Gallipoli in 1915 looms large in New Zealand's cultural memory. But what did the soldiers think of their time there? Here Glyn Harper lets these men speak for themselves, telling the story of the campaign through the letters of those who fought on the peninsula. The revealing, often heartbreaking correspondence is grouped into chronological chapters - from preparation and landing to the burial truce, the August offensive on Chunuk Bair and the December withdrawal. The letters highlight the fortitude and comradeship that got the men through the trials of day-to-day life in the trenches: 'heat, flies, bully-beef, broken sleep, night and day shooting or fighting or working'. Their details are poignant: praise for Australian mates and complaints about 'Tommies'; reports of female Turkish snipers; jubilation at ground gained and heartfelt sorrow at friends killed. At times the soldiers put on brave faces and spin upbeat yarns about their experiences; at others they wrestle with the harrowing conditions and inadequate writing equipment to express, as clearly as they can, what war is like. Harper chose the 190 letters in this book, most of them previously unpublished, from more than 600 that he collected from archives, newspapers and family collections, and complements them with a comprehensive introduction, biographical notes on the letter writers, new maps and historic photographs. With a foreword by Lieutenant General Rhys Jones, Chief of New Zealand Defence Force

The late Manning Clark aims to bring to attention the foibles and strengths in every person, traits forced to the fore in the hardship and trauma that occured during the establishment and develpment of white settlement in Australia. Clark sets out to use the tragedies and successes of national heroes such as explorerers and generals, and those of the average person such as soldiers at Gallipoli and farmer's wives, to create a memorable tableau.
