Gallipoli, 1915 : Frontal Assault on Turkey, Paperback

Gallipoli, 1915 : Frontal Assault on Turkey Paperback

Part of the Osprey Military Campaign S. series

Description

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 characterised 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 army 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 of World War I (1914-1918).
