Gallipoli: The Turkish Story

Kevin Fewster

1st

Publisher: Allen & Unwin Australia

Format: Paperback

Gallipoli occupies a special place in the national memory of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. For the British, French, Indians and Germans, the Gallipoli campaign is remembered as just another name in a long, tragic list of World War I battles. For Turks, Australians and New Zealanders it is something apart; a significant event in the self-development of their individual nations. As such, the battles have not been allowed to fade in people's memories"". Almost every Australian and New Zealander has heard the story of the Anzacs at Gallipoli, yet most wouldn't recognise the battle by its Turkish name, the Battle of Canakkale, or recognise the battle as an invasion of foreign land. In fact, very few Australians and New Zealanders are familiar with the battle beyond the experiences of their own soldiers. But what of the victors - the Ottoman armies who fought with great bravery and distinction at Gallipoli? This book portrays the view from the Turkish side of the trenches, and in doing so paints a richer portrait of the past and broadens our knowledge and understanding of this tragic event.
