To be successful, a modern army needs logistical support to survive - to arm, feed, transport, and care for its soldiers.

As history shows us, the maintenance of health in any army , is a key factor in warfare. In many respects the Gallipoli campaign was a doomed undertaking. The seeds of ultimate defeat in December 1915 were the risks that attended a hugely ambitious, complex, and large-scale amphibious operation - the landings on well-defended shores on the Gallipoli peninsula, under cover of darkness.

Communications at the time were primitive, while general staff officers had little understanding of their own army's medical assets or the needs of a largee medical organisation. The Australian Army Medical Corps (AAMC) received aid from, and gave support to, all five forces at various times during 1915.

Underlying the execution of the Dardanelles campaign were factors wholly outside the control of the Australian AMS. Undoubtedly tragic, and sometimes avoidable, errors were made at the highest level of command, with subsequent pressures on the AMS. An amphibious operation of this type and scale, however, was without parallel in modern military history, and mistakes were inevitable, as they are with any campaign of such complexity.

Gallipoli An Australian Medical Perspective explores these complexities and mistakes through the eyes of the infant Australian Army Medical Corps.
