As depicted in the great film Lawrence of Arabia, General Allenby planned a swift campaign that would knock Turkey out of World War I. His Desert Mounted Corps succeeded in sweeping through the Turkish lines in an action which was to take them all the way to Damascus, supported on their right flank by Lawrence and his Arab irregulars. Allenby's Egyptian Expeditionary Force had achieved the breakthrough in Palestine that commanders on the Western Front had only dreamed of. Turkey's war was over, and the days of the tottering Ottoman Empire were numbered. The lasting legacy of the battle of Megiddo was that it revealed the potential of a modern war of movement, producing a profound change in military thought and tactics. Here, Bryan Perrett examines this campaign, possibly the most successful of World War I, in detail. The important roles of the RAF, irregular Arab forces, armored cars and cavalry are all explained, and the impressive effects of their co-operation analyzed. Bryan Perrett's readable style, his close attention to detail and his obvious familiarity with the period make this a truly fascinating book.
