9780060937089: Gallipoli (Perennial Classics)

When Turkey unexpectedly sided with Germany in World War I, Winston Churchill, as Sea Lord for the British, conceived a plan: smash through the Dardanelles, reopen the Straits to Russia, and immobilize the Turks.

On the night of March 18, 1915, this plan nearly succeeded -- the Turks were virtually beaten. But poor communication left the Allies in the dark, allowing the Turks to prevail and the Allies to suffer a crushing quarter-million casualties.

A vivid chronicle of adventure, suspense, agony, and heroism, Gallipoli brings fully to life the tragic waste in human life, the physical horror, and the sheer heartbreaking folly of fighting for impossible objectives with inadequate means on unknown, unmapped terrain.

From the Inside Flap:

An epic of gallantry and folly -- the whole story of the most controversial campaign of modern times.

The Allied campaign against Gallipoli began in 1915 when the Turks went into World War I on Germany's side. Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty in the British War Cabinet, conceived the plan of smashing through the Dardanelles with a fleet of old battleships and reopening the straits to Russian shipping.

For years the Turks had been beaten in every battle they fought, and the project stood a reasonable chance of success.

But what happened in the next nine months was a nightmare of lost opportunities, confused planning, and military incompetence.

ONE OF THE MOST STAGGERING STORIES OF WAR EVER TOLD
