Dust, Donkeys and Delusions : The Myth of Simpson and His Donkey Exposed
debunks the myth that has grown up around Private John
Simpson Kirkpatrick, the so-called `Man with the Donkey',
the quintessential Australian `hero' of Gallipoli. While
various elements of the Simpson myth have now become
popularly accepted as `history', Dust, Donkeys and
shows clearly, based on historical documents, both
and unofficial, that almost every word ever spoken or
about Simpson following his death is false.
