9781844157228: Anzac: The Landing (Battleground Gallipoli)

The Anzac legend was born on the shores of Gallipoli during the historic morning of 25th April 1915. Landing on a hostile beach, under the cover of darkness, the Anzacs moved inland rapidly, but the response of the Ottoman forces was equally quick. The outcome of the campaign was arguably sealed during the first day, when the door for an Anzac victory was closed. With the order to dig, dig, dig and to stick it out, a stalemate was secured from the clutches of almost total disaster. After the Australians and New Zealanders received their baptism of fire, they became a stubborn thorn in the sides of the Ottoman army. Futilely after eight grueling months of fighting, the campaign came to an end with the complete evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsula. Failure did not mar the actions and sacrifice of the Anzacs who bestowed a powerful legacy, as well as being a landmark in the birth of modern Turkey. Almost a century later, with all the veterans now sadly gone, their legacy still survives in Anzac Day and with the ever increasing numbers of pilgrims who visit the battlefield today. This attractive and well-written book will serve as either a handy guide or concise history (or both).

About the Author:

Stephen J Chambers was born in West Sussex, England and from an early age has a passion for history. He is today a leading military historian on the Gallipoli campaign but also specialises in the Crimea, Zulu, Boer, Sudan, First and Second World Wars. His first book on Gallipoli, "Gully Ravine" (2002) has been highly recommended, along with its follow-on Pen & Sword volume called "Anzac The Landing" (2008). Military history has continued to be the successful theme with "Uniforms & Equipment of the British Army in World War One" (2005), the first serious work on the subject. A further Gallipoli work, "Suvla: August Offensive" was published in 2011, adding new material to the history of this fascinating campaign. In 2014, the Suvla partner volume, "Anzac: Sari Bair", will be published.
