PDF The Landing at Anzac, 1915 (Australian Army Campaign Series Book 12)

Book description

The Landing at Anzac, 1915 challenges many of the cherished myths
of the most celebrated battle in Australian and New Zealand history —
myths that have endured for almost a century. Told from both the Anzac
and Turkish perspectives, this meticulously researched account questions
several of the claims of Charles Bean’s magisterial and much-quoted
Australian official history and presents a fresh examination of the evidence
from a range of participants.

Author Chris Roberts takes a forensic look at this iconic battle, providing
a tactical analysis of the terrain, scrutiny of the misplaced landing and
the two fateful decisions that determined the initial course of the battle,
and examines the performance of both Anzac and Turkish commanders
and troops. Long considered a ragtag army, the Ottoman forces proved
tough, well-trained opponents who outclassed an inadequately trained,
inexperienced and poorly prepared Australian and New Zealand Army
Corps. The Landing at Anzac, 1915 opens with an essential comparative
study of the opposing forces and their respective battle plans, pushes
through the failure of the Anzacs to exploit their initial success, the bitter
fighting at Lone Pine and Baby 700 on the afternoon of 25 April and
concludes with the stalemate reached by the evening of 27 April.
The Landing at Anzac, 1915 reaches a carefully argued conclusion in
which Roberts draws together the threads of his analysis delivering
some startling findings. But the author’s interest extends beyond the
simple debunking of hallowed myths, and he produces a number of
lessons for the armies of today. This is a book that pulls the Gallipoli
campaign into the modern era and provides a compelling argument for
its continuing relevance. In short, today’s armies must never forget the
lessons of Gallipoli.
