Gallipoli : making history / edited by Jenny Macleod. - Version details - Trove
The Gallipoli campaign of serves as an excellent case study through which the process of 'making history' can be observed. Among the case studies are Martin Gilbert on Churchill, Keith Jeffery on Gallipoli and Ireland, and David Dutton on the French view of a campaign in which they were more heavily involved than the Australians.
Christopher Pugsley uncovers the reality behind the myths of Anzac, and Keith Grieves writes on the local commemoration of the campaign in Sussex. Other chapters consider the writing of unit histories, the professional study of the campaign in the development of amphibious warfare, the romance of the British cultural history of Gallipoli, and the shifts that are evident in the portrayal of Anzacs in Australian cinema.

Many of the defenders of Gallipoli came from throughout the Ottoman Empire, which then controlled much of the Middle East. Also, the attacking forces came from across the British and French Empires, with British and French troops making up the largest part of the Entente land forces and suffering the majority of the casualties. Troops came from as far apart as Senegal and Newfoundland which was not yet part of Canada and Indian and Gurkha troops suffered some of the highest casualties in proportion to their numbers.
The campaign was not just fought ashore but at sea. One aspect of the eleven month campaign February to January which was clearly found to be inadequate was British decision making at the strategic level. Churchill relentlessly sought innovative ways of prosecuting the war beyond solely reinforcing the British Army on the Western Front and he was an important, but not the only, supporter of the Dardanelles campaign.
What was lacking was the capacity and the assessment of the benefits and risks of the attack at Gallipoli. This sort of scrutiny would have improved the odds of better decision making, but would not have guaranteed it.
Gallipoli: 100 years on
Historical assessment now stresses the highly unlikely chance of success in the campaign, particularly as time progressed, but this is much clearer in retrospect than it was at the time. The impressive resilience of the Ottoman defenders masked the fact their military performance in most preceding conflicts, and the earlier stages of the First World War, had frequently been poor.
