After a visit to Gallipoli in the summer of 2005 I was curious to learn more about the history of the battle fought there during the First World War. This little volume was a fine introduction to the battle, mixing the minutiae of the tactics and strategy of the battle with insights into the minds of soldiers on the ground with good use of sources from both sides of the conflict and from lower ranks as well as officers. Its a readable and informative account of the conflict which resonated particularly well after having spent a day at the various sites of the battle.
