London: Cassell and Company, Ltd, 1916. Hardcover. Very good. With a folding map. London: Cassell and Company, Ltd, 1916. Reprint. "The author, an official war correspondent, insists that he wishes to provide a fair account of the Dardanelles. He then damns the other early commentators such as Ashmead-Bartlett and Fortescue for being critical. He blames the failure on understandable human error, insists that the problem between Churchill and Fisher was a personal matter, and that the problems were thoroughly understood before the decision to attack was taken" (Van Hartesveldt: The Dardanelles Campaign, 1915, #517). Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with pictorial black stamping. Mild wear to the corners and tips; otherwise very good. (Inventory #: 64828)
