Gallipoli: The Turkish Story by Kevin Fewster, Vecihi Hurmuz Basarin, Hatice Hurmuz Basarin
Offering interviews with Turkish survivors of the Gallipoli campaign, insights from their descendants, and more than 50 photographs from the Turkish side of the trenches, this is the story of the infamous World War I battle from the Turkish perspective. This portrayal of the Battle of Canakkale, as the Turks call it, paints a richer portrait of the past and broadens the knowledge and understanding of this tragic event. This battle has become a common bond between Turkey and the Australians and New Zealanders against whom they fought, and this book presents a point of view which is of growing interest.
