Description - Gallipoli, the Turkish Defence by Harvey Broadbent

The people of both Australia and Turkey attach meaning to their national identities and ideals as a result of the Gallipoli campaign. Gallipoli- The Turkish Defence is the first and only book to reveal new details of the Turkish point of view of the conflict, revealing how the Turks reacted and defended Gallipoli and how they succeeded in forcing the Allied forces to withdraw.Author and Turkish language expert Harvey Broadbent spent five years in Turkish military and other archives to unearth the Turkish story. He had access to an extensive collection of previously unresearched documents, ranging from official government records to military and personal diaries and correspondence of soldiers. The result is the fullest possible and most comprehensive account of the Turkish defence yet produced, which fills a huge gap in the history of the Gallipoli Campaign.
