Gallipoli 1915, Philip J. Haythornthwaite

Gallipoli 1915, Philip J. Haythornthwaite

This Osprey covers the famous Gallipoli campaign in World War I, where British, Australian and New Zealand forces fought a bloody stalemate against the Turks in a hope of opening a second Front. This 96-page book is well illustrated with lots of photographs and colour drawings of aircraft, ships and the troops involved as well as 3 D maps of the battles. The text is very detailed and well researched with orders of battle and examples of the humour of the soldiers in such difficult conditions. The naval aspects of the campaign are also covered and a brief section covers war gamming the campaign, which is very good and includes some suggested rules.
