Gallipoli: the Turkish defence : the story from the Turkish documents

Harvey Broadbent

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


At the start of the 21st century both Australia and Turkey have grasped relevance to their national identities and ideals in the Gallipoli campaign. Based on exclusive access to Turkish archives, Gallipoli, the Turkish Defence is the first and only book to tell the complete story of this bitterly fought campaign, from both points of view. Author and Turkish language expert Harvey Broadbent spent five years in the Official Archives in Ankara to unearth the Turkish story. There, he had access to a huge collection of previously unresearched documents, ranging from official government records to the personal diaries and correspondence of soldiers. The result is the fullest possible account of the Turkish defence at Gallipoli and a comprehensive history that will provide the most detailed battlefield history of the campaign yet produced.
