It is 1915, during World War I at Gallipoli, and Lt. Roy Irwin is missing. The young woman who loves him, and the men who fought beside him, begin their search for Lt. Irwin. Later, in 1919, historian C.E.W. Bean returns to Anzac Cove with artist George Lambert and soldier Harry Vickers to solve the greatest mystery of the campaign, to discover Gallipoli's secret. Forward to 2015, and Dr. Mark Troy's quest to preserve the peninsula from roadworks is sidetracked by political intervention and diplomatic intrigue. But a flirtation with a dynamic young woman from Army Intelligence uncovers long-forgotten documents protecting Gallipoli's graves. In this eagerly awaited book, one of Australia's leading historians uses a playful hybrid of history and fiction - moving between the historical realm and the world of the imagination - to recreate the most dramatic moments of the Gallipoli campaign in World War I. Incorporating war, love interest, action, intrigue, art, and the exotic, On Dangerous Ground is fast-paced, accurate, and thrilling, retelling of one of the weightiest moments of the 20th century. Including a selection of paintings by Australian artist George Lambert, this great Australian/Gallipoli novel will appeal to a wide readership interested in history and action novels. *** "A unique look at Gallipoli in all its tragedy, calamity and complexity. An eloquent and pacy narrative that will engross all readers who have any interest in this myth-founding event." - Tom Keneally, author of "Schindler's List" and the biography "Abraham Lincoln"
