Riguardo questo articolo

(Subject: World War I - Other Theatres) Virtually unheard of prior to 1915, Gallipoli, the Turkish peninsula bordering the Dardanelles, conjures up visions which surpass the horrors of the trench warfare on the Western Front. Valued for its command of the seaway, Gallipoli was the scene of an horrific campaign between April 1915 and January 1916 in which more than 100,000 men lost their lives. For the Allies it was a battle fought in vain as the invasion forces were withdrawn for no gain. For the Turks it was a marvellous victory. With more than 450 photographs of major battle sites, cemeteries and other major features, the book provides a unique link between the past and the present.

Riassunto:

Gallipoli. Virtually unheard of prior to 1915, the very name of the Turkish peninsula bordering the Dardanelles - the narrow waterway linking the Mediterranean with the Black Sea - now conjures up visions of privation and hardship and death which even surpass the horrors of the trench warfare on the Western Front. The barren landscape was the backdrop to a horrific campaign between April 1915 and January 1916 in which upwards of 1000,000 men lost their lives. For the Allies it was a battle fought in vain for the invasion forces were withdrawn for no gain, but for the Turkish army it was a marvellous victory in what they refer to as their Canakkale War. Steve Newman has visited Gallipoli several times in his study of the campaign and he spent a strenuous 10 days on the peninsula in June 1999 to take the comparisons in a temperature of over 100 degrees. The book provides a link between past and present; from one century to the next; that the deeds of those whose bones lie buried "in a foreign field" shall not be forgotten.
