Deutschland uber Allah! Germany, Gallipoli and The Great War, Williams, John F.
14078 Williams, John F. Deutschland uber Allah! Germany, Gallipoli and The Great War
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2016 1925003523 / 9781925003529 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 200 pages When in August 1915 Grand Admiral Tirpitz warned that if the Dardanelles fell Germany would lose the war he was expressing the view, not only of other German military strategists, but also that of Winston Churchill. The idea that the Allies were defeated at Gallipoli not because of Churchill's faulty conceptualization but because of inferior Anglo–French leadership runs like a leitmotiv through German accounts, which even reveal their anxiety that the Dardanelles would likely be breached on the night of the first attempt. They reveal, too, that in German eyes what finally tipped the balance of the campaign was the brilliance and audacity of a lone-wolf U-boat commander. Because three of the nations involved – Australia, New Zealand and Turkey – have responded to the defence of the Dardanelles as a 'birth' or 'rebirth' of their nation, the fact that it was German-led has been neglected. John Williams' examination of the German perspective brings into relief the place of the Gallipoli campaign in the First World War as a whole. ID290909
