After listening to Joan Baez sing a wonderful rendition of the classic "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", my interest in the Dardanelles Campaign in the Turkish theater during WWI was sparked.
I checked out two new books on this subject and I suggest reading them
both as I did. They are Dardanelles Disaster: Winston Churchill's
Greatest Failure by Dan Van der Vat and Gallipoli: the End of the
Myth by Robin Prior.
Also watch the library's DVD Gallipoli which is highly acclaimed and one of Mel Gibson's first movies.
The Dardanelles disaster : Winston Churchill's greatest failure / Dan van der Vat.
Gallipoli : the end of the myth / Robin Prior.
