RACHEL BILLINGTON Glory
Powerful and personal, this will be the ultimate story of the men and women that history forgot. Glory is the story of four soldiers and the women who loved them, whose lives are completely altered by the Battle of Gallipolli during the First World War. Beginning with the fateful landing on the Turkish beaches, Rachel Billington follows the young British soldiers and those from the Empire as they lay trapped under murderous machinegun fire on the narrow strip of rocky land. This is a tale of both heroism and stupidity, culminating in the daring evacuation of 1916 and the horrific aftermath of the conflict. Glory is inspired by Rachel Billington’s grandfather’s death fighting in Gallipolli in 1915. ‘One hallmark of a Billington book is elegant, apparently effortless plotting . . . the detail acute, the prose polished and the pages turning effortlessly’ Independent Rachel Billington is a regular journalist, feature writer and reviewer. She is co-editor of Inside Time, the national newspaper for prisoners and a Vice-President of English PEN.
