Название: Gallipoli 1915: Frontal Assault on Turkey
Автор: Haythornthwaite Ph.J.
The Gallipoli expedition of 1915, the brainchild of Winston Churchill, was designed to knock the Turkish Empire out of the First World War and open a supply route to Russia. The campaign is characterized by the military incompetence of the higher commands, particularly the Allies. However, in spite of this, Gallipoli deserves to be, and is, also remembered for the heroism and resourcefulness of both the British and Turkish armies and the men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This book details the battles, hardships, and eventual evacuation that these men had to go through, in this comprehensive guide to the Gallipoli landings.
