Customer Review

on December 18, 2013
My grandfather was in the Dardanelles campaign so I have always been interested, though sadly he died before I could ask about it. Richard Freeman makes the story off the blunders and let-downs so gripping that the successful evacuation at the end comes as a bit of an anti-climax. Many lessons in the story for politicians trying to conduct a war. It was news to me that the famous Lord Kitchener had become a huge liability, I would have liked more about the private soldiers and NCOs who are the real, if reluctant, heroes of the campaign and a bit more about the Turkish army and defences, obviously badly underestmated. Are there parallels with the fall of Singapore in 1942 ?
