David Nicolle) INTRODUCTION According to historian George H. Cassar, there are more books written about Gallipoli in the English language than on any other campaign in the First World War. If this is true, then why should anyone attempt to add to an already dense field? Moreover, why would an informed reader take on this book? Simply stated, the extant history is incomplete and there are gaps, holes, and niches that still need to be filled in order to achieve a more complete understanding of what happened in that place over a ten-month period in 1915.

This 90-year body of Eurocentric received wisdom had led to a number of generalized beliefs about the Gallipoli campaign that are known today to be incorrect. The most commonly held Western notion about the Ottoman victory was that the Turks stubbornly held on long enough for a series of Allied mistakes to disable the Allied plan. Tactical blame rested on British command failures, lack of artillery and shells, and inexperienced troops and commanders as reasons for failure. At the operational level, it argued that Allied failure was attributed to Ottoman numerical superiority and incompetent execution of the Allied plan.

Plans to send troops to Serbia via Greece were put on hold but the council leaned heavily in favour of Balkan intervention. It was still unclear exactly how a naval-only attack on the Dardanelles would achieve control of a major city such as Constantinople but, except for Fisher, the council was enthusiastic in its support of this objective. This represented an important shift in British strategic policy, which could previously have been characterized as maintaining the status quo of the separate efforts of the BEF in France and the Grand Fleet in the North Sea, while shifting to an as-yet-to-be determined coordinated effort involving army and navy forces in the Balkan theatre.
