On 15th April 1915, British and Dominion troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula.
Thecampaign which followed lasted over eight months and cost the terrible total of nearly halfa million Allied and Turkish casualties.
The eventual failure of the Gallipoli campaign, afterheart-breaking opportunities had been missed, was a disastrous set-back to Allied hopes.
Itremains one of the most engrossing and poignant tragedies in British military history. In our new edition of this classic in military writing, Robert Rhodes James was one of thefirst historians to work from the official archives and makes brilliant use of diaries and lettersof the men who fought there and the photographs they took. Gallipoli stands the test of time, bringing vividly to life the conditions and circumstances of acampaign which has never ceased to enthral the imagination.
