The British Navy's catastrophic attempt to pass through the Dardanelles to Constantinople was a turning point in the history of World War I, and its repercussions still affect us today. Acclaimed naval military expert Dan van der Vat argues that the disaster at the Dardanelles prolonged the war by two years, led to the Russian Revolution, forced Britain to the brink of starvation, and contributed to the destabilization of the Middle East."Van der Vat provides a dogged narrative." -Library Journal
With never before published information on Colonel Geehl's mine laying operation, which won the battle for the Germans, The Dardanelles Disaster is essential reading for everyone interested in great naval history, Churchill's early career, and World War I.
