9780275982881: Gallipoli 1915: Frontal Assault on Turkey (Praeger Illustrated Military History)

The Gallipoli expedition of 1915, the brainchild of Winston Churchill, was designed to knock the Turkish Empire out of the First World War and open a supply route to Russia. The campaign is characterized by the military incompetence of the higher commands, particularly the Allies. However, in spite of this, Gallipoli deserves to be, and is, also remembered for the heroism and resourcefulness of both the British and Turkish armies and the men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This book details the battles, hardships, and eventual evacuation that these men had to go through, in this comprehensive guide to the Gallipoli landings.

The Gallipoli expedition of 1915, the brainchild of Winston Churchill, was designed to knock the Turkish Empire out of the First World War and open a supply route to Russia. Although characterized by the most outstanding courage and determination on both sides, the campaign is also remembered for the military incompetence of the higher commands, particularly that of the Allies. However, in spite of the bungling and incompetence of the Allied higher command, Gallipoli deserves to be remembered not simply for it's failure, but also for the heroism and resourcefulness of both the British and Turkish armies and the men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Here, in this Campaign title Philip Haythornwaite details the battles, hardships and eventual evacuation that these men had to go through. Both the contribution of the Royal Navy and the reaction of the Turks to the landings are also excellently covered in this comprehensive guide to the Gallipoli landings.
