Enter to win a copy of the event miniseries 'Gallipoli' on Blu-ray

Commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign with the eye-opening drama

To celebrate this week's release of the television mini-series 'Gallipoli' (which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign) on Blu-ray HD and DVD, we have five copies of the Blu-ray set to give away to readers, thanks to our friends at Roadshow Home Entertainment.

The greatest invasion in the history of warfare was to become a diabolical failure - an eight-month siege where the bravery of Anzac troops was squandered. But in doing so a legend, and a nation, were born. As dawn breaks on April 25, 1915, ANZAC troops go into battle on the beaches of the Gallipoli peninsula. Landing in the dark chaos, Tolly (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Bevan (Harry Greenwood) and their mates struggle to establish a tenuous foothold on the treacherous slopes and deep ravines. They endure the next eight months on the peninsula learning lessons of survival. By the time of the final evacuation they have also learned the skills of combat and what it means to be a young man in war.
