It took place on a landscape littered with classical and romantic sites just across the Dardanelles from the ruins of Homer s Troy. The campaign became, perhaps, the greatest 'what if' of the war.

This could have avoided the bloodletting of 1916 18, saved Tsarist Russia from revolution and side stepped the disastrous Treaty of Versailles in effect, altering the course of the entire 20th century. This study is the first to focus on operational and campaign-level decisions and actions, which drove the conduct of the campaign. It departs from emotive first-hand accounts and offers a broader perspective of the large scale military planning and maneuvering involved in this monstrous struggle on the shores of European Turkey.
