Highly Recommended.

This new Battleground Guide provides all the information required by those wishing 
to visit the battleground and walk the land, remember the dead and understand the 
terrain. It also provides a wealth of detail and a great many excellent images that 
anyone with an interest in military history will find valuable. It also presents concise 
information in a pocketable book that augments, and often corrects, some of the 
serious historical analysis in other books.

Gallipoli was a gamble by the British. It ended in withdrawal but it was a chance that 
had to be taken. There were deficiencies in command, most notably in continuing the 
fight beyond the point where withdrawal should have been the correct decision. The 
basic plan was drawn on the experience of the Royal Navy forcing the Straits and the 
need to reinforce the Russian Army. At the same time, the Western Front was clearly 
bogged down in a costly war of attrition. To not have tried a new attack to break the 
stalemate would have been unforgivable.

The brunt of the battle and its casualties was bourne by the Australian and New 
Zealand troops that had been sent towards Europe via the Suez Canal. It was logical to 
send fresh troops who were already almost at the point where the battle seemed most 
appropriate.

Low cost air travel now opens battlegrounds to those wishing to visit battles fought by 
family members and by those who wish to add some personal insights to their 
knowledge of the ground. As a result, this new book should sell as well as its sisters 
in the series.
