New Book Display Recomendation: Gallipoli: The Turkish Defence

Each week recent purchases are placed on the new book displays inside the library. You can subscribe to the New Library Books email or view the New Books list online.

As Anzac Day approaches and the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings a recommendation from the New Books display is:

Gallipoli: The Turkish Defence by Harvey Broadbent
Call number: 940.426 BRO

An extract from the publishers website states:

The people of both Australia and Turkey attach meaning to their national identities and ideals as a result of the Gallipoli campaign. Gallipoli: The Turkish Defence is the first and only book to reveal new details of the Turkish point of view of the conflict, revealing how the Turks reacted and defended Gallipoli and how they succeeded in forcing the Allied forces to withdraw.
