This volume covers the period immediately following the disastrous Gallipoli landing of 25 April 1915, up until the evacuation of Helles in January of the following year. It deals in detail with the second battle of Krithia, the repulse of the Turks, the battles of Lone Pine and Sari Bair, and the landing at Suvla Bay. It also covers Lord Kitchener’s visit to Anzac and the subsequent British Government order to evacuate Anzac and Suvla.
