The Gallipoli Campaign stands out as a landmark in the history of the First World War, and it was perhaps the most controversial action of that war; it certainly ended in tragedy. The author, Joseph Murray, was among the 400,000 British and Empire troops taking part; he served as a naval rating turned soldier in Hood Battalion of the Royal Naval Division. This book is based on a diary he kept at the time and his later letters home. The battle was a war of nerves, largely played out underground in the tunnels constantly being built by either side. This is a thoroughly riveting and detailed account of that important but tragic operation.
