Grasping Gallipoli : Terrain, Maps and Failure at the Dardanelles, 1915, Hardback Book

Grasping Gallipoli : Terrain, Maps and Failure at the Dardanelles, 1915 Hardback

Description

The failure of the Gallipoli campaign was instantly blamed on a great untruth - that the War Office was unprepared.

This book, incorporating information unavailable elsewhere, shows that in fact the WO and the Admiralty had amassed a huge amount of data.

Aerial reconnaissance had played a part - even Lawrence of Arabia had done his bit!

The War Office knew all about Greek plans to capture the peninsula and one plan was even Anglo-Greek.

The authors examine all the intelligence and how it was used or ignored and in the process, in the words of the late Richard Holmes they `illuminate a wildly beautiful landscape, which never fails to charm and shock me in equal measure.'
