The failed naval offensive to force a passage through the Straits of the Dardanelles in 1915 drove Winston Churchill from office in disgrace and nearly destroyed his political career. For over a century, the Dardanelles campaign has been mired in myth and controversy. For some, it was a brilliant concept that might have dramatically shortened the First World War and saved millions of lives. For others, it was fundamentally misconceived and doomed to fail. Churchill is either the hero of the story, or the villain.

Drawing on a wide range of original documents, Christopher M. Bell shows that both perspectives are flawed. Bell provides a detailed and authoritative account of the campaigns origins and execution, explaining why the naval attack was launched, why it failed, and how it was transformed into an even more disastrous campaign on the Gallipoli peninsula. He untangles Churchills complicated relationship with Britains admirals, politicians, and senior civil servants, and uncovers the machinations behind the bitter press campaign in 1915 to drive him from power.

The book goes on to explore the origins of the myths surrounding the ill-fated campaign. It provides the first full account of Churchills tireless efforts in the decades after 1915 to refute his legion of critics and convince the public that the Dardanelles campaign had nearly succeeded. Largely by his own exertions, Churchill ensured that the legacy of the Dardanelles would not stop him becoming Prime Minister in 1940.

Recensione:

A book which combines a thoroughly researched, well-written and convincing new assessment of one of the British Empires most controversial and disputed campaigns with a thoughtful and reflective survey of how the episode has come to be understood since ... one of the best additions to the scholarship on the First World War produced since 2014. (David G. Morgan-Owen, English Historical Review)

This is quite simply the best naval history book that I have read this year. Christopher Bell may not have written the last word on this still very emotive subject, but I can't imagine that anyone will be able to produce a better, more equitably balanced and authoritative account of the Dardanelles operation than he has done. It is quite superb in virtually every way. (Malcolm H. Murfett (Kings College, London), The International Journal of Maritime History)

This is quite simply the best naval history book that I have read this year ... It is quite superb in virtually every way ... It deserves a wide readership. If you think that you know all there is to know about Churchill and the Dardanelles, I suggest that you think again. (Malcolm H. Murfett, The International Journal of Maritime History)

Bell's historical judgements are balanced and fair. He has made a major contribution to British naval history and to a clearer understanding of that towering twentieth-century political figure, Winston Churchill. Bell's book will stand as the definitive study of the Dardanelles campaign and the central role of Churchill for many years to come. (W. Mark Hamilton, The Mariner's Mirror: The International Quarterly Journal of The Society for Nautical Research)

An authoritative account. (Paul Ridgeway, Flash: Trinity House Fraternity Review)

A marvellous book. (Robin Brodhurst, British Journal of Military History)

Bell's conclusions are admirably balanced. (David French, Journal of Military History)

The blame-shifting, name-calling, and finger-pointing were not stilled by an exhaustive Dardanelles Commission inquiry and its 1919 report, but should now finally come to an end a century later with the publication of this well-researched, very well-written, but above all judiciously objective book by the distinguished naval historian Christopher M. Bell... This excellent book cuts through a century of pro- and anti-Churchill writing to reach remarkably balanced conclusions. (Andrew Roberts, Weekly Standard)

Impressive and readable... Churchill and the Dardanelles is an important and balanced book... For anyone interested in Gallipoli, or Winston Churchill, it is essential reading. (Gary Sheffield, Stand To!)

Christopher Bell's outstanding Churchill and the Dardanelles... is a fantastic exposition of how academics can write successfully for a broader audience without compromising at all on the quality of their research, and comes with a hearty recommendation from me. (David Morgan Owen, Defence in Depth)

L'autore:

Christopher M. Bell is Professor of History at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He has published widely on twentieth century naval history, and is the author of The Royal Navy, Seapower and Strategy Between the Wars (2000) and co-editor of Naval Mutinies of the Twentieth Century: An International Perspective(2003) and At the Crossroads Between War and Peace: The London Naval Conference of 1930 (2014). His most recent single-authored book, Churchill and Sea Power, published by Oxford University Press in 2012, was described in the American Historical Review as 'essential reading for students of both Churchill's naval career and modern British sea power.'
