Synopsis

The Gallipoli campaign of World War I was a bold strategic move to capture the Ottoman Turkish capital of Istanbul, but things began to go wrong from the very start. Allied troops found the landing  beaches heavily defended, and the fighting soon stalemated into a brutal battle of attrition in horrific conditions. It was only after eight months of heavy losses that the allies finally admitted defeat and withdrew. However, the bravery and sacrifice of the fledgling Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), which formed a large part of the allied forces, sparked the birth of a national consciousness in both countries.

This was one of the first books published after the campaign, and was written specifically to boost morale in the wake of the defeat, and to answer the many questions about how it went so badly wrong. It takes a detailed look at the entire campaign, including the birth of the strategy, the tactics used during the landings and subsequent battles, and the final withdrawal. This ebook edition includes 15 photographs and maps.
