Murder At Gallipoli

By David Wilson

General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook

"Murder At Gallipoli" relates the strategy and action of the Battle of Gallipoli with an account of the work of the Field Hospital there. It points out the weaknesses of the campaign and questions if the battle should ever have taken place and why lessons had not been learned from previous similar campaigns. It also examines the conduct of the Generals. In the mine-strewn Dardanelles and upon the sunbaked, blood drenched rocky slopes of Gallipoli, death always partnered every sailor and soldier. As at Balaclava, virtually everyone knew that someone had blundered, but the army and the navy as one man fought to the bitter end to make the best of a bad bargain to tear triumph out of impossibilities.

I live in the Highlands of Scotland with my wife, Tess, amidst the beautiful scenery where I gain my inspiration. As well as writing I am also interested in poetry, fishing the hill lochs, photography, landscape painting and walking. I have written four books on the First World War, composed a book of poems by the old Scottish poets and I am at present writing short fictional humorous stories.
