The brainchild of Winston Churchill, the 1915 Gallipoli campaign was designed to break the deadlock in the muddy trenches of the Western Front by knocking Turkey out of the war and opening a supply route to Britain’s ally, Russia. This classic account recreates the drama of Gallipoli with its tragic hesitations and missed opportunities. Written by an outstanding Australian war correspondent, Gallipoli won the inaugural Duff Cooper Prize in 1956. This edition has a new introduction by Sir Max Hastings.
