Gallipoli - Attack from the Sea

By: Victor Rudenno (375/35808)
Publisher: UNSW Press ISBN: 9781921410598

The Gallipoli campaign of 1914-15 is one of the most discussed events of the First World War and continues to seize the imagination today. The first modern seaborne landing of British, French, Australian, New Zealand and Indian Forces on a hostile, and what proved to be a well-defended, peninsula has been the source of many stories of individual heroism and unprepared leadership.

Of particular fascination, and until now largely overlooked in historical accounts, are the considerable naval dimensions both prior to and during the campaign. Providing logistical si[[prt amd additional firepower, the Navy's presence at Gallipoli proved how influential submarine power could be. Achieving considerable though indecisive victories against the enemy. This astute and absorbing book provides the only account ot the complete Allied submarine and related German U-boat activity, integrated with a thorough and penetrating analysis of the strategies and action of all land, sea and air forces. Incorporating patrol and technical reports and personal testimonies, Victor Rudenno's gripping narrative does full justice to the dramatic and inspirational battles of the Dardanelles.
