This 2-volume book represents a personal account of the Gallipoli Campaign written from the perspective of a British Army officer. The Gallipoli Campaign was a military campaign in the First World War that took place on the Gallipoli peninsula February 1915 to January 1916. The Entente powers, Britain, France and Russia, sought to weaken the Ottoman Empire, one of the Central Powers, by taking control of the straits that provided a supply route to the Russian Empire. The Allies' attack on Ottoman forts at the entrance of the Dardanelles in February 1915 failed and was followed by an amphibious landing on the Gallipoli peninsula in April 1915 to capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople. In January 1916, after eight months' fighting, with approximately 250,000 casualties on each side, the land campaign was abandoned and the invasion force withdrawn. It was a costly defeat for the Entente powers and for the sponsors, especially First Lord of the Admiralty (1911-1915), Winston Churchill. The campaign was considered a great Ottoman victory._x000D_ Contents:_x000D_ The Start_x000D_ The Straits_x000D_ Egypt_x000D_ Clearing for Action_x000D_ The Landing_x000D_ Making Good_x000D_ Shells_x000D_ Two Corps or an Ally?_x000D_ Submarines_x000D_ A Decision and the Plan_x000D_ Bombs and Journalists_x000D_ A Victory and After_x000D_ K.'s Advice and the P.M.'s Envoy_x000D_ The Force – Real and Imaginary_x000D_ Sari Bair and Suvla_x000D_ Kavak Tepe Attack Collapses_x000D_ The Last Battle_x000D_ Misunderstandings_x000D_ The French Plan_x000D_ Loos and Salonika_x000D_ The Beginning of the End
