April 2015 Non-Fiction Book of the Month. The Centenary of Gallipoli, the First World War campaign that was doomed to failure, bringing about the tragic loss of so many men. First published in 1956, Alan Moorehead’s history of Gallipoli still remains as the definitive study. Now republished with a new introduction from Sir Max Hastings, who recalls how Moorehead’s books became an inspiration for his journalistic career and his own writing. With in-depth analysis of the campaign, the objectives both sides set themselves, and with character sketches of the main players, it brings the complex operation to life, showing how and why it went so terribly wrong and a century on, remains a by word for the loss of human life.
