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.
