Simpson and the Donkey: The Making of a Legend
The simple tale of Simpson and his donkey is the pre-eminent legend of heroism. It is the story of a humble water carrier, a rescuer of wounded men, a tale of compassion, stoic persistence, with a tragic end. His tale is an integral part of the ANZAC story.
Across time, a simple tale can acquire a complicated history. This is what happened to the man with the donkey and is the subject of this book, Simpson's 'afterlife', the legend.
