Reviews

"History of a very high order.... the best account by far of the campaign in 1915-16."-Jay Winter, Yale University

-- Jay Winter
"This is a detailed account, with excellent photos, of a failed military expedition that took the lives of 46,000 Allied soldiers and left another 86,000 wounded." - Fergus Mulligan, Irish Times -- Fergus Mulligan * Irish Times *
"Prof. Robin Prior has consulted the archives to provide a full account that demolishes many myths ... Students of history will welcome this definitive work." - A. G. Noorani, Frontline -- A G Noorani * Frontline *
"It might seem that everything worth saying about World War I has already been said, but then along comes a book such as Robin Prior's Gallipoli and it's time to make room on the shelf for another essential title. Reviewer Robert Messenger praised Mr. Prior's depiction of Britain's disastrous attempt in 1915 to force open the Dardanelles-the heavily defended entrance to straits off northern Turkey, a key link between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Gallipoli, according to Mr. Messenger, is 'a near-definitive analysis of the campaign . . . . It is military history of the highest order.'"-Mark Lasswell, "Standout Selections: The Year in Books," Wall Street Journal -- The Year in Books * Wall Street Journal *
"It's a well-written book, complete with a great bibliography and some of the most outstanding maps to be delivered with any account of war and battle. That the author could assemble such a plethora of information and then distill it into such a readable account would be a story unto itself. For anyone who wants to know where, when and what Gallipoli was, this book is for you."-Vice Adm. Robert F. Dunn, The Washington Times -- Vice Adm. Robert F. Dunn * Washington Times *
"[Prior's] narrative is fluid and internally coherent. He makes excellent use of archival material to expose the serious flaws in previous narratives, including the "official" history of the campaign. . . . certainly the best account yet published [of the Dardanelles campaign]."-Nicholas A. Lambert, The Journal of Military History -- Nicholas A. Lambert * Journal of Military History *
Selected as one of ten Best of 2009 Books, The Wall Street Journal * Wall Street Journal *
"[This] book sets a new standard for assessing the Allied Dardanelles campaign in 1915."-Mustafa Aksakal, American Historical Review -- Mustafa Aksakal * American Historical Review *
"It might seem that everything worth saying about World War I has already been said, but then along comes a book such as Robin Prior's Gallipoli and it's time to make room on the shelf for another essential title . . . . It is military history of the highest order.'"-Mark Lasswell, "Standout Selections: The Year in Books," Wall Street Journal -- The Year in Books * Wall Street Journal *
"This work is an excellent addition to the current body of scholarhsip with something for both the neophyte and the seasoned historian."--Blake Whitaker, Canadian Journal of History -- Blake Whitaker * Canadian Journal of History *
"Wootton is at his most illuminating in his discussion of Galileo's place in the history of science (although he is not so pedestrian as to use the phrase) and the blend of personal ambition, politics and chance that made him, by virtue of his emphasis on the tension between empiricism and deduction."-Claudio Vita-Finzi, Times Literary Supplement -- Claudio Vita-Finzi * Times Literary Supplement *
"This is an excellent text with new insights, and one which is sure to provoke further debate."-Matthew Hughes, English Historical Review -- Matthew Hughes * English Historical Review *
