Written by a leading authority and featuring new research from Turkish sources, this book details the great tragedy of the fighting at Gallipoli. It shows that the campaign could have changed the course of World War I and even 20th century history as a whole, had it been better executed, with an evaluation at command level of what went wrong for the allies.

"This study is the first to focus on operational and campaign-level decisions and actions, which drove the conduct of the campaign. It departs from emotive first-hand accounts and offers a broader perspective of the large scale military planning and maneuvering involved in this monstrous struggle on the shores of European Turkey." --WWI Modeller
