At dawn on April 25, 1915, Allied forces landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in present-day Turkey, with the hope of securing the Dardenelles thus allowing the Imperial Fleet to go all the way to Constantinople. If all went well, it was the view of Winston Churchill and Lord Kutchener that the Ottoman Empire would be knocked out of the war. It did not go quite as they planned. This story has been told before; and this time Fitzsimons¬† not only recreates the disaster as experienced by those who endured it or died in the attempt; he takes the reader to the secret deliberations of the British War Council, to the Ottoman leadership and to the trenches on both sides of No-Man’s-Land, shining a new light on the whole campaign.¬† Illustrated with black and white photographs.
