Stephen J Chambers was born in West Sussex, England and from an early age has a passion for history. He is today a leading military historian on the Gallipoli campaign but also specialises in the Crimea, Zulu, Boer, Sudan, First and Second World Wars. His first book on Gallipoli, "Gully Ravine" (2002) has been highly recommended, along with its follow-on Pen & Sword volume called "Anzac The Landing" (2008). Military history has continued to be the successful theme with "Uniforms & Equipment of the British Army in World War One" (2005), the first serious work on the subject. Further Gallipoli works include "Suvla: August Offensive" (2011) and its partner volume, "Anzac: Sari Bair" (2014) and to be released in March 2015 by Bloomsbury is my co-authored book with Richard van Emden, 'Gallipoli: Dardanelles Disaster in Soldiers' Words and Photographs'.
