Book about Gallipoli...?


Hello, I was wondering if someone here could recommend a introductory book or two about the campaign for Gallipoli.

It would be nice if the book is easily available in the United States or via a website like [sign in to see URL]

Thank you,

Hi Bill

There are many great books about Gallipoli, but the one that should be easiest for you to get hold of is:
Gallipoli. by Les Carlyon, (2001/2002)

You could also go to the Australian War Memorial website - and under the section Australians at War you will find the Official Histories of WW1 - the first 2 Volumes would be worth a look.

Cheers, Frev

Hi Bill,

I have just finished reading "Goodbye, Cobber, God Bless You" by John Hamilton it has only been published recently. Its the story of the Fatal charge of the Light Horse, Gallipoli, August 7 1915. (From the Cover)
It concentrates mainly on the area of the NEK, where so many lost their lives.

Fair puts you off your lunch in some places.

Your local library should also have a good supply of Gallipolli also.

Bill,

For a long time Alan Moorhead's 'Gallipoli' was considered one of the best and still is. But for a beginner go with Frev. Les Carlyon's book is excellent and really makes you feel the frustration of the whole campaign.

Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?

Most of the books on the market are a great read on the campaign so hard to go wrong. Just check your local bookshops or online like this one > ]Gallipoli Books

With so many to select from now - it is a case of which one to read first!

Hi Bill, before reading any book about Gallipoli, you have got to read this one. The official history which is the base of almost many of the books ides a great fact and misleads public.

In fact Anzacs won the war, but military censorship declared a defeat for their strategic and political aims. Unimaginable level of manipulation there is. Having read this book, read the other ones and see how rigged the Gallipoli history is. Really unbelievable but all the content of the book is from very reliable western sources.

Here is a link of the book.
