Book Description Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Straits of Dardanelles that separates Europe and Asia Anatolia, were fortified in the 15th century with massive bronze bombards and history has proved that unwelcome ships have to run a formidable gauntlet.On 18 March 1915 a powerful fleet of British and French warships attempted to overwhelm the shore defences of the Dardanelles to allow minesweepers to clear the Straits. The attack failed at huge cost; three ships sunk and three more seriously damaged.By bringing together many threads of information, including extracts from British intelligence sources that had previously determined that a naval attack alone would not succeed, this definitive work examines the flaws of Winston Churchill s strategy and identifies the inadequacies of pitting warships against shore fortifications. The Allied inability to control the Straits necessitated the disastrous Allied invasion of Gallipoli that cost the lives of some 250,000 men.From the 19th century the Ottoman army and Turkey s coastal defences relied entirely on the German firm of Krupp for guns. The author describes how this choice was a crucial element to the successful defence of the Dardanelles.Many of the fortifications on the Gallipoli peninsula and the Asian shore are still accessible. The Defence of the Dardanelles identifies those that can be visited, many of which still have wrecked guns emplaced. Bookseller Inventory # PAS9781781590522

Book Description HB 254 ppPublished Price £25 The Dardanelles Strait, separating Europe and Asia Anatolia, was fortified in the fifteenth century with massive bronze bombards causing any unwelcome ships to run a truly formidable gauntlet. So it proved on 18 March 1915 when a powerful fleet of British and French warships attempted to force a passage to allow minesweepers to clear the Strait. The attack failed at the cost of three ships sunk and three more seriously damaged. The Allied inability to control the Strait necessitated and, crucially, delayed the disastrous Allied invasion of Gallipoli that cost the lives of some 250,000 men.The author makes an in-depth study of the Turkish defences that caused such loss to the Royal Navy and French allies and reveals that the Ottoman army and TurkeyÕs coastal defences relied almost entirely on the German firm of Krupp for guns. This choice was a crucial element to the successful defence of the Dardanelles. Using excellent illustrations he also examines the relative strengths of the Royal and French Navies and Turkish coastal defencesMany of the fortifications on the Gallipoli peninsula and the Asian shore are still accessible. The Defence of the Dardanelles helpfully identifies those that can be visited, many of which still have wrecked guns emplaced. Bookseller Inventory # 22020
