The August Offensive was the last attempt by the Allied forces to break the stalemate with the Turkish defenders that had developed since the Anzac landings in late April 1915. It resulted in some of the bloodiest battles on the Gallipoli peninsula - which included the battles for Leane's Trench, Lone Pine, The Nek, Chunuk Bair, Hill Q and Hill 971. Drawing from letters, diaries and official reports from both Commonwealth and Turkish sources, David Cameron recreates in compelling detail the five days of the August offensive. He describes the complexity behind the battles and how they affected the men who were directly involved. Both visceral and poignant, it is the first book since Bean's Official History Volume II (1924) to describe in detail a failed offensive in which bodies were shattered and lives senselessly lost.

About the Author

David W. Cameron is a biological anthropologist who previously held an Australian Research Council QEII fellowship in the department of anatomy and histology at the University of Sydney and an Australian Research Council postdoctoral fellowship in the School of Archaeology and Anthropology at the Australian National University. He conducted a preliminary archaeological survey of the Gallipoli battlefields and is the author of "25 April 1915."

Reviews

"I loved this book . . . if readers want to relive the battle I can recommend nothing more than they read this and Bean's official account side by side." --Peter Hart, Imperial War Museum, on "25 April 1915"
