Gallipoli: the mere name summons the story of this well-known campaign of the First World War. And the story of Gallipoli, where in August 1915 the Allied forces made their last valiant effort against the Turks, is one of infamous might-have-beens. If only the Allies had held out a little longer, pushed a little harder, had better luck—Gallipoli might have been the decisive triumph that knocked the Ottoman Empire out of the First World War. But the story is just that, author Rhys Crawley tells us: a story. Not only was the outcome at Gallipoli not close, but the operation was flawed from the start, and an inevitable failure. A painstaking effort to set the historical record straight, Climax at Gallipoli examines the performance of the Allies’ Mediterranean Expeditionary Force from the beginning of the Gallipoli Campaign to the bitter end. Crawley reminds us that in 1915, the second year of the war, the Allies were still trying to adapt to a new form of warfare, with static defense replacing the maneuver and offensive strategies of earlier British doctrine. In the attempt both the MEF at Gallipoli and the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front aimed for too much—and both failed. To explain why, Crawley focuses on the operational level of war in the campaign, scrutinizing planning, command, mobility, fire support, interservice cooperation, and logistics. His work draws on unprecedented research into the files of military organizations across the United Kingdom and Australia. The result is a view of the Gallipoli Campaign unique in its detail and scope, as well as in its conclusions—a book that looks past myth and distortion to the facts, and the truth, of what happened at this critical juncture in twentieth-century history.

The thrilling and definitive history of World War I in the Middle East An Economist Best Book of the Year By 1914 the powers of Europe were sliding inexorably toward war, and they pulled the Middle East along with them into one of the most destructive conflicts in human history. In The Fall of the Ottomans, award-winning historian Eugene Rogan brings the First World War and its immediate aftermath in the Middle East to vivid life, uncovering the often ignored story of the region's crucial role in the conflict. Unlike the static killing fields of the Western Front, the war in the Middle East was fast-moving and unpredictable, with the Turks inflicting decisive defeats on the Entente in Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, and Gaza before the tide of battle turned in the Allies' favor. The postwar settlement led to the partition of Ottoman lands, laying the groundwork for the ongoing conflicts that continue to plague the modern Arab world. A sweeping narrative of battles and political intrigue from Gallipoli to Arabia, The Fall of the Ottomans is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the Great War and the making of the modern Middle East.

Drawing from letters, diaries, and official reports from both Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and Turkish sources, this narrative re-creates in compelling detail the five days of the August Offensive of World War I--the last attempt by the Allied forces to break the stalemate with the Turkish defenders. It resulted in some of the bloodiest battles on the Gallipoli peninsula. Describing the complexity of the battles, this chronicle also details how they affected the soldiers involved. Both visceral and poignant, this narrative is the first to look at the failed offensive as a whole, describing it from both sides of the line.

Our Friend the Enemy is the first detailed history of the Gallipoli campaign at Anzac since Charles Bean’s Official History. Viewed from both sides of the wire and described in first-hand accounts. Australian Captain Herbert Layh recounted that as they approached the beach on 25 April that, once we were behind cover the Turks turned their .. [fire] on us, and gave us a lively 10 minutes. A poor chap next to me was hit three times. He begged me to shoot him, but luckily for him a fourth bullet got him and put him out of his pain. Later that day, Sergeant Charles Saunders, a New Zealand engineer, described his first taste of battle, The Turks were entrenched some 50-100 yards from the edge of the face of the gully and their machine guns swept the edges. Line after line of our men went up, some lines didn’t take two paces over the crest when down they went to a man and on came another line. Gunner Recep Trudal of the Turkish 27th Regiment wrote of the fierce Turkish counter-attack on 19 May designed to push the Anzac’s back into the sea, It started at morning prayer call time, and then it went on and on, never stopped. You know there was no break for eating or anything … Attack was our command. That was what the Pasha said. Once he says “Attack”, you attack, and you either die or you survive.

Young Cargo who had recently been promoted to Lt was killed in the trenches the night before last. A splendid young fellow – soldier-officer. Very sad really. Still, no better death. Perhaps the greatest leader of men during the Gallipoli campaign, Lieutenant-Colonel W.G. Malone was commanding officer of Wellington Battalion of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force at Gallipoli. He is probably the best-known individual from that ill-fated campaign, a result both of his humanity and his superb leadership, which culminated in the successful assault on Chunk Bair on 8 August 1915. Malone was killed later that day. No Better Death reproduces previously unpublished correspondence and writings, as well as many images, also previously unpublished, generously provided by Malone's descendants, generously provided by Malone's descendants. This is a story of valour and fortitude under the enormous pressure of being responsible for the lives of many others. It is also the story of a man who has an unbounded love for his family, and constantly drew on the reciprocity of that love to pull through and overcome the frustrations, fear and life-threatening situations he was forced to endure.

The Anzac Experience strips away the myth of the Anzacs being natural soldiers who only had to pick up a rifle to be superb fighters in battle. It tells the gripping story of New Zealanders, Australians and Canadians at war – from the Boer War in South Africa to the Empire's involvement in the cataclysmic struggle of 1914-18.This is the story of citizen armies becoming professional as they learned the lessons of the Gallipoli landings and applied these to the battles of Western Front in France and Flanders. By trail and error these colonial forces became expert in the business of war, so that by 1918 they were the fighting elite in the British Armies in France.Christopher Pugsley – author of the seminal Gallipoli: The New Zealand Story – assesses who was first among equals and how the crucible of war shaped New Zealand and Australian identity forever. Richly illustrated with historical photographs and plentiful maps, The Anzac Experience is a rare blend of social analysis and military history, examining the conduct of war, the characters of the men who took part, and the impact their actions had on the young societies they sought to defend.

The New Zealanders surged up the scaling ladders and over the top into the dawn mist. In November 2004, a soldier from the Western Front was chosen to symbolise all New Zealand's military heritage, underlining the way that our experience in Belgium and France between 1916 and 1918 speaks to us over the years and generations. Why did so many New Zealanders sail from the 'uttermost ends of the Earth' to die in muddy foreign soil? and were the tactics really as mindless as climbing out of a trench and walking very slowly towards the Germans until everyone was dead?

The people of Australia and Ireland have much in common based on genealogy and a shared heritage. The connections forged between Anzacs and the Irish in World War I have been little known until now. Jeff Kildea tells the story of Australian and Irish soldiers who fought alongside each other at Gallipoli, in France and Belgium, and in Palestine. But it was in Ireland itself that Australian soldiers forged their relationships with the Irish people, as tourists, as countrymen returning home, and in some cases becoming involved in the Easter Rising of 1916.

This is a history of World War I, seen through the eyes of Sir Henry Rawlinson, a middle-ranking commander who frequently acted under General Haig. By examining Rawlinson's role in the War, the authors are able to follow the actual events of the battlefield and show how they related to the strategies of the High Command. Rawlinson kept a diary in which he recorded his views on tactics and the day-to-day events of the conflict. The authors use the content of the diary as the basis of detailed discussions on night attacks, poison gas, the introduction of the tank, hurricane bombardment and creeping barrages. Command on the Western Front is not a biography, nor is it psychohistory. Rather, it uses Rawlinson as a lens through which to study the tactics of the time - tactics that usually proved woefully inadequate in dealing with the defensive positions that characterized industrial warfare.

A Traveller's History of New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands gives the curious tourist not only a modern day portrait of New Zealand and the far flung islands, their political systems and economic diversity, but also looks at the early settling of this massive area which covers about a fifth of the whole surface of the earth. When European navigators first sailed into the region, they were astonished at the exotic shared culture and language of the natives, separated in many cases by terrifying stretches of open ocean. The story of the peopling of the South Pacific Islands and New Zealand is one of the world's great epics. The book also has practical information for visitors, an Historical Gazetteer, and is illustrated with relevant maps plus a Chronology of Events. Special topics covered include Firewalking in Fiji, the Musket Wars, the Haka, Polynesian Tattooing and the Jon Frum Cargo Cult of Vanuatu. Book jacket.
