about

When Turkey unexpectedly sided with Germany in World War I, Winston Churchill, as Sea Lord for the British, conceived a plan: smash through the Dardanelles, reopen the Straits to Russia, and immobilize the Turks.

On the night of March 18, 1915, this plan nearly succeeded -- the Turks were virtually beaten. But poor communication left the Allies in the dark, allowing the Turks to prevail and the Allies to suffer a crushing quarter-million casualties.

A vivid chronicle of adventure, suspense, agony, and heroism, Gallipoli brings fully to life the tragic waste in human life, the physical horror, and the sheer heartbreaking folly of fighting for impossible objectives with inadequate means on unknown, unmapped terrain.

Editorial Reviews

"Deserves to be ranked among the very best books on the subject....It is masterly in its reconstruction of the development of the strategical situation on both sides, impartial in its handling of the bitter controversies which raged during and after the campaign, and sympathetic in its treatment of the individual who made (or more frequently lost) reputations at Gallipoli." (-- Gordon A. Craig, New York Herald Tribune Book Review)
