Illustrated card covers in Fine condition. Second paperback edition, b&w illustrations, appendices, index. S23 Why was the Allied naval assault of 1915 such a failure? Did the Ottoman Turks know about the Allied landings? And did Sir Ian Hamilton, the overall commander of the Allied forces at Gallipoli, really blunder by intervening at Suvla? These questions, and the key issue of why the Ottoman Turks won the Gallipoli campaign - or why the Allies lost it - have never been satisfactorily answered. 'Gallipoli 1915' aims to answer them, while also telling the dramatic story of what actually happened through the voices of British, Australian, and Turkish soldiers who took part in one of the hardest-fought battles of World War One.
