Shores of Gallipoli: Naval Aspects of the Anzac Campaign

Shores of Gallipoli: Naval Aspects of the Anzac Campaign (Paperback)

Synopsis

Few people realise that the Royal Australian Navy played a crucial part in the Gallipoli campaign, nor that it cost 8,000 Australian lives. Naval Historian Tom Frame, describes the outstanding achievement of the submarine AE 2, the first Allied sub to penetrate the Dardanelles, and the heroic work of the Ran Bridging Train. He also reveals how the sunken AE 2 was discovered by a joint Australian-Turkish diving team in 1998. Most striking is his argument that professional arrogance and poor navigation resulted in the Anzacs being put on the 'wrong' beach, rather than the alleged tidal current. Based on original research and the author's personal knowledge of the Gallipoli Peninsula and the Aegean Sea, this compelling account makes a major contribution to Gallipoli history.
