On 15 April 1915, British and Dominion troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula. The campaign which followed lasted over eight months, and cost the terrible total of nearly half a million Allied and Turkish casualties. The eventual failure of the Gallipoli campaign, after heart-breaking opportunities had been missed, was a disastrous set-back to Allied hopes. It remains one of the most engrossing and poignant tragedies in British military history. In this acclaimed study Robert Rhodes James sheds an entirely new light on the campaign and discounts many of the legends which still surround Gallipoli. Making brilliant use of the diaries and letters of the men who fought there and the photographs they took, he brings vividly to life the conditions and cicumstances of a campaign which has never ceased to enthral the imagination.
