'Given how many terrible events occurred in the First World War, Gallipoli still holds a unique place. Half a million Allied and half a million Ottoman troops fought each other for months over possession of a barren, craggy peninsula under conditions which were completely nightmarish for all combatants. Now, ninety years after these terrible events, Harvey Broadbent has written a gripping, brilliantly illustrated account, drawing heavily on oral accounts by veterans of both sides. Gallipoli: The Fatal Shore is a fitting tribute to the agonies of those who fought here and shows how crucial the battle was in forging the modern national identity of Australia, New Zealand and the Turkish Republic.

It was an adventure to die for. A daring attempt to force the Dardanelles and capture the Turkish capital Constantinople. For the Allies it was Trojan War and crusade combined. Once again Europe would prevail over an ancient enemy. History records otherwise. The Gallipoli Campaign was to become one of the most savagely contested of the First World War and end in defeat and controversy. Over 400 000 Allied troops were killed and wounded as the Peninsula became a killing ground as deadly as any on the Western Front. Illustrated with more than 200 photographs and artworks from collections in Australia, Britain, new Zealand and Turkey.' (from the dustjacket)
