The Gallipoli campaign of 1914--15 is one of the events of the First World War that continues to seize imaginations 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, the attack has been remembered for its many acts of individual heroism as well as its unprepared leaders. Of particular fascination, and until now largely overlooked in historical accounts, are the naval dimensions of the campaign. The Navy's presence at Gallipoli crucially proved how influential submarine power could be. This absorbing book provides the only account of the complete Allied submarine and related German U-boat activity, integrated with a thorough analysis of the strategies and actions 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 in the Dardanelles.
