      Although it has some new material on the Turkish side, by and large this Gallipoli is the familiar Australian version and, as such, inferior to Carlyon’s excellent book. Peter weaves a number of personal stories throughout the book which give it life and provides a window into the hardship and losses rather than a dry list of events. I was on my way to Gallipoli when I read this book and it really helped give meaning to the sites I visited/5(67).

    The classic account of one of the most tragic battles in modern history. When Turkey unexpectedly sided with Germany in World War I, Winston Churchill as First Sea Lord for the British conceived a plan of smashing through the Dardanelles, reopening the Straits to Russian shipping, and immobilizing the Turks.

Instead there were a few drawn maps but the major fault was the photographs. All were poor quality with the first 12 being captioned as showing views of the Gallipoli landing sites or battle sites but in fact showed small maps.4/5(6).
