From 25 April 1915 to 9 January 1916, troops from Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Turkey engaged in a bitter struggle for the Gallipoli peninsula. The Allied forces wanted to forge a passage through the Dardanelles in order to create a sea route to Russia and capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople. Despite having more troops and being better supplied, the Allies suffered devastating losses in the face of the brave and resourceful Turks.

Gallipoli tells the story of this campaign in a unique and comprehensive manner, through three authors who expertly describe their country's role and the impact the conflict had. For the Turks it was a defining moment in their history, becoming the basis of the Turkish War of Independence, for the British it was almost the downfall of Winston Churchill and for the ANZACs Gallipoli was the birthplace of the ANZAC spirit.
