More than ninety years on, the Gallipoli landings of 1915-16 are famous as perhaps the most disastrous, horrific and pointless campaign of the entire First World War. From the initial botched landing through the long agonising months in the trenches, a combination of strategic incompetence and intolerable conditions led to unimaginable suffering for Allies and Turks alike and a combined death toll of over 120,000. First published in 1956, when it won the first Duff Cooper Prize, Alan Moorehead's book is still the classic account. Vivid, analytical and highly readable, it brings the complex operation to life, showing just how and why it went so wrong.
