GALLIPOLI THEN AND NOW
by Steve Newman

Virtually unheard of prior to 1915, Gallipoli, the Turkish peninsula bordering the Dardanelles, conjures up visions which surpass the horrors of the trench warfare on the Western Front. Valued for its command of the seaway, Gallipoli was the scene of an horrific campaign between April 1915 and January 1916 in which more than 100,000 men lost their lives. For the Allies it was a battle fought in vain as the invasion forces were withdrawn for no gain. For the Turks it was a marvellous victory. With more than 450 photographs of major battle sites, cemeteries and other major features, the book provides a unique link between the past and the present.

BATTLES ON THE TIGRIS
by Ron Wilcox

In 1914 the British expedition to Mesopotamia set out to protect oil concession in Southern Persia but, after numerous misfortunes, ended up capturing Baghdad and Northern Towns in Iraq. Initially the mission was successful in seizing Basra but the British found themselves drawn North, becoming besieged by the Turks at Kut. After various failed relief attempts the British surrendered and the prisoners suffered appalling indignities and hardship, culminating in a death march to Turkey. Hopes that the Russians would come into the war were dashed by the Revolution and fighting against the Turks continued right up to the Armistice.

OFFICIAL HISTORY OF OPERATIONS ON THE N.W. FRONTIER OF INDIA 1920-35

A facsimile reprint of the 1936 edition incorporating Parts I, II and III. The sixteen years between the suppression of tribal rebels in Waziristan and the unrest which welled up there in 1936 were something of a golden age for the British administration in the region. The tribes were quiescent and a drive by the Government to inculcate civilized ideas' went ahead unopposed. Even as nationalist agitation organised by the Indian National Congress affected other parts of the sub-continent, the tribes of the North-West frontier remained quiet.

THE BLACK AND TANS
by Richard Bennett

The Black and Tans were the fiercest and most feared of the British forces in Ireland in the Twenties. Sent by Lloyd George's Coalition Cabinet in March of 1920 to suppress the IRA, they aquired a fearsome reputation and united Irish and British public opinion against the Government. Wearing a strange mixture of dark green tunics, khaki trousers, black belts and berets they had wide powers and could arrest anyone at will. This is an accurate and authoritative account of an ugly and harrowing period in Anglo-Irish history.
