Paul Daley and Mike Bowers, who have been friends for years, decided to follow in the footsteps of the Australian Light Horse, tracing their WWI battles in the Holy Land.
One of the most famous parts of this campaign was the charge of the Light Horse at the battle of Beersheeba on 31st October 1017. This was famously portrayed by Australian war artist George Lambert:
Mike and Paul went to Palestine, the Jordan Valley, to Syria and Lebanon, visiting the battlefields where shrapnel, bullet casings and even human bones are still scattered.
The book of stories and photographs of their epic journey is called Armageddon: Two Men on the Anzac Trail published by Miegunyah Press.
