• A landmark work including extensive new research from leading experts on the conflict
• Will become one of the 'go-to' books for serious Gallipoli research

Generally conceded to be doomed from the outset by the most recent historiography, the Gallipoli campaign still arouses heated controversy. In a new compendium of original research by an impressive array of established and up-and-coming scholars, Gallipoli: New Perspectives on the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force 1915-16 explores a wide variety of aspects of the Allied military effort to force a passage through the Dardanelles straits and eliminate Ottoman Turkey from its Central Powers alliance.
