Gallipoli

Peter Hart

One of the most famous battles in history, Gallipoli forced Winston Churchill from office, established Turkey's iconic founder Mustafa Kemal ('Ataturk') and marked Australia's emergence as a nation in its own right. It began as a bold move led by the British to ultimately capture Constantinople, but Peter Hart's new history explains that from the initial landings - which ended with so much blood in the sea it could be seen from aircraft overhead - to the desperate attacks of early summer and the battle of attrition that followed, it was a lunacy that was never going to succeed.
