Summary
The failure of the Gallipoli campaign was instantly blamed on a great untruth{u2014}that the War Office was unprepared. This book, incorporating information unavailable elsewhere, shows that in fact the WO and the Admiralty had amassed a huge amount of data. Aerial reconnaissance had played a part{u2014}even Lawrence of Arabia had done his bit! The War Office knew all about Greek plans to capture the peninsula, and one plan was even Anglo-Greek. The authors examine all the intelligence and how it was used or ignored and in the process, in the words of the late Richard Holmes, they "illuminate a wildly beautiful landscape, which never fails to charm and shock me in equal measure."
