Gallipoli - 100 Years
A Comprehensive Study and Guide to Visiting
The only contemporary ‘one stop shop’ to Gallipoli and the campaign, with much of the content distilled by the author from walking the battlefields over many years. This is a measured sequential guide to visiting all the battlefield sites: when to visit; how to get there; being there, and where to stay. Included in this book are: biographies of the commanders (British, Australian, New Zealand, French and Turkish); events leading to the campaign; preparations; the plan; Turkish defenses; the landings and all the major military and naval actions at all three theatres of operation (Anzac, Helles and Suvla); dedicated chapters on submarine and aircraft actions; Turkish and Allied order of battle; VC recipients; all cemeteries and their details. There are eight walks or challenges and two one day tours (one never covered) to the site of General Hamilton’s HQ during most of the campaign on Gökçeada Island (Imbros). Forty eight full colour and ten sepia high gloss pages of photographs; detailed diagrams; and low level aerial and satellite images make it easy to better understand key battlefield locations, the campaign and Gallipoli (both then and now). There is a comprehensive index, timeline and useful Turkish words and numbers.
