Description

Most of the books that have been written about the Turkish Front in World War I are only about Gallipoli rather than including Palestine, Mesopotamia and the Balkans too. This is an historically important campaign as the destruction of the Ottoman Empire led to political turmoil in the Middle East. But it also has a big emotional pull. With extracts from the letters, diaries and other papers of those involved, this is a moving and hard-hitting book. Casualties were high, both in action and from disease. There were many examples of great courage and endurance, and some instances of a significant lack of these qualities. Heights of incompetence at the higher levels were seen at Sulva Bay and in some action in Mesopotamia. The accounts in this book provide a stark reminder of what the soldiers endured.
