Volume two of the War with Turkey during the Great WarThis two-volume history, never before published in its own right, was written by the famous John Buchan, author of The 39 Steps, Greenmantle and others, and was originally included in a multi-volume work which covered the entire First World War. While the text appears unchanged the large number of excellent campaign maps have been significantly enlarged and numerous photographs and illustrations which were not included in the multi-volume edition have been added. Structured chronologically, the first volume principally covers the war in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq), as the allies fought their way towards Baghdad, together with the ill-fated expedition to invade the Dardanelles and strike towards the heart of the Ottoman empire in Turkey itself. This second volume chronicles a mobile war in stark contrast to the stalemate of the Western Front. These campaigns, fought on several fronts, involved the horsemen of Australia and New Zealand, the Yeomanry of the British shires and the infantry of the county regiments. They saw conflict with Senussi tribes, the Arab Revolt and bitter fighting between the Turks and Russians. This Leonaur exclusive book is a fascinating account of the last war of its kind recounted by an erudite author.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
