The Ottoman Army won a historic victory over the Allied forces at Gallipoli in 1915. This was one of the most decisive and clear-cut campaigns of the Great War. Yet the performance of the Ottomans, the victors, has often received less attention than that of the Allied army they defeated. Edward Erickson, in this perceptive new study, concentrates on the Ottoman side of the campaign. He looks in detail at the Ottoman Army ? at its structure, tactics and deployment ? and at the conduct of the commanders who served it so well. His pioneering work complements the extensive literature on other aspects of the Gallipoli battle, in particular those accounts that have focused on the experience of the British, Australians and New Zealanders. This highly original reassessment of the campaign will be essential reading for students of the Great War, especially the conflict in the Middle East. AUTHOR: Edward Erickson recently retired from a long distinguished US Army career which included service in senior positions in Europe and the Middle East, in particular in Turkey and Iraq. He is one of the foremost authorities on the Ottoman Army during the Great War. SELLING POINTS: ? Full account of the Gallipoli campaign from the Ottoman point of view ? Analysis of the defensive strategy and tactics that defeated the Allied landings ? Assessment of the commanders including Liman von Sanders and Mustafa Kemal ? A new perspective on one of the most controversial episodes of the Great War ILLUSTRATIONS 20 illustrations *
