The Dardenelles

Richard Freeman July 19, 2018

Few military campaigns have caused as much controversy as the Dardanelles Gallipoli venture of 1915 On the sea Churchill s Navy bombarded the Turkish forts but retired defeated On land Kitchener s soldiers struggled off the beaches to die in front of the Turkish lines Was it the one brilliant idea of the war as Prime Minister Henry Asquith said or just a wild folly WFew military campaigns have caused as much controversy as the Dardanelles Gallipoli venture of 1915 On the sea Churchill s Navy bombarded the Turkish forts but retired defeated On land Kitchener s soldiers struggled off the beaches to die in front of the Turkish lines Was it the one brilliant idea of the war as Prime Minister Henry Asquith said or just a wild folly Would it, as Lord Kitchener claimed, shorten the war And, if both men were right, what went wrong This book goes back to the War Council minutes, the naval telegrams and the military dispatches to cast new light on these questions The true roles of Churchill, Kitchener, Asquith and the War Council are revealed and many later myths and untruths are swept away What is left is the story of how an ill assorted and incompetent War Council dreamed of taking Constantinople but let down their military and naval commanders in their attempt to do so The Dardanelles Tragedy and Heroism is a must read for those who want to know how the major decisions of the campaign were really taken and who really made them Richard Freeman graduated in mathematics before following a career in distance education He now writes on naval history His other books include The Great Edwardian Naval Feud , Pearl Harbor Hinge of War , and Coral Sea 1942 Turning the Tide Endeavour Press is the UK s leading independent publisher of digital books.
