Price: £48.00

Arguably the most comprehensive study in Batsford's much sought-after British Battles series. The finest modern single-volume account of the ill-fated campaign and the first to access much previously unpublished (indeed unvisited) official material. Hugely researched, and including much important vernacular material from private archives and interviews, together with detailed surveys of the battlefields. 'The mass of legends which still surround Gallipoli have been examined, and, in many cases, discounted; old judgements have been disproved or confirmed; some exalted reputations have been sharply questioned; others have been restored.' A model campaign history. Scarce in this condition. Enser, p.144.
