Also from the April 2015 edition of BBC History magazine.
"THE MYTHS OF GALLIPOLI"
Those myths to include:
1. "The campaign was a good idea let down by poor execution."
2. "The fighting at Gallipoli was mainly an Anzac affair."
3. "The fiasco turned Australia from a British colony into a nation."
4. "The August Offensive nearly succeeded in breaking the deadlock on the peninsula."
5. "It was a heroic-romantic campaign."
NO to all!
Also NO mention of: A. Liman von Sanders. B. That 1807 British Expeditionary force.
Liman von Sanders the German general officer in operational control of those Turkish forces in opposition to the allied invasion of Gallipoli. It was not so much that allied planning and execution was so poor and flawed as was Turkish resistance as directed by the German von Sanders was so good?
"THE GALLIPOLI CAMPAIGN THE CONCEPT NOT WITHOUT MERIT, WORTHY OF THE ATTEMPT AND TO AN EXTENT BASED ON A PRIOR COMBAT ACTION FROM OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS PRIOR!"
It can be reasoned also THAT WHAT EXACT CAMPAIGN OF THE GREAT WAR WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS WENT ACCORDING TO PLAN! Most of the time events degenerated into the proverbial "senseless carve-up" without amelioration. And Gallipoli was NO exception.
