Gallipoli air war

SHOP:9781742611099
From the author of 36 Days comes the dramatic and almost unknown account of the war fought high above the Gallipoli peninsula, as the fragile biplanes of the Royal Flying Corps and the sea planes of the Royal Navy battled both the elements and the Turkish Air Force (supplied and manned by their German allies).
Whether flying reconnaissance missions, acting as artillery observers for the guns of the Royal Navy or bombing Turkish targets, the men who manned these frail machines had a remarkable impact on the campaign.
Using meticulous research and the diaries and accounts of the combatants, this is a fascinating new front in the well-known Gallipoli story.
Author Hugh Dolan served with the British Army in Bosnia as a junior NCO and witnessed the importance of military intelligence in operation planning. He then commissioned and served as a Squadron Leader (Intelligence) in headquarters roles in Australia and overseas.
Soft cover, photographs, 432 pages.
