Hodja, Victoria, Australia, 1st ed., 1985. 139 pp., photo & other ills. D.j., 26 x 20cm. FINE. For Turks, Australians and New Zealanders, Gallipoli was a significant event in the self-development of their individual nations. Previous accounts focus totally on the experiences of Allied soldiers, but this account of Gallipoli is from a Turkish perspective. The authors provide an admirably thorough and humane account of the events leading up to what in Turkey is known as the Battle of Canakkale ' the battle itself and the aftermath. The first book written in English about Turkey's perception of the battle allows us to view history through opposition eyes.
