Wrecks of the Dardanelles Campaign.

The Dardanelles Campaign is among the world’s most important naval battles, which also changed the course of the First World War.

Echoes from the deep is a unique documentary and record of the filming of ship wrecks which were sunken during the Dardanelles Campaign. It records the stories of these 31 ships and submarines and their complete stories, from launching to sinking, of the Ottoman, British, French and Australian registered vessels, as well as 2 later shipwrecks which were all lost in the Dardanelles Straits, Aegean Sea and the Marmara Sea.

The contents include photographic images captured using the most up to date underwater imaging technology and sonar images recorded with the latest Multibeam Sonar and Sidescan Sonar technology.

Accompanying the book is a 47 minutes documentary DVD which was produced in 2013. This DVD includes beautiful footage of Selcuk Kolay and his team as they search the waters off the Dardanelles for these wreckages.

Hard cover, photographs, 283 pages.
