Defeat at gallipoli

Defeat at gallipoli

Steel, Nigel; Hart, Peter

The participants in the battle of Gallipoli tell the story of the failed offensive through contemporary accounts and memories recorded later in life. The bitter campaign against the Turks from April 1915 to January 1916 was ill-conceived, inadequately equipped and never likely to succeed.;The bravery and resilience of the troops drawn from the United Kingdom, from the dominions of the Empire, from France and her African colonies, in the face of disease and violent death is shown in their letters, diaries and recorded memories which recall the reality of the campaign. This book provides an insight into the lives of the soldiers involved and an account of the doomed campaign
