Churchill and the Dardanelles

Christopher M. Bell

  • The story of the Dardanelles - the campaign which nearly destroyed Churchill's reputation forever
  • A detailed and authoritative account of the campaign's origins and execution, based on extensive archival research
  • Strips away the layers of myth that have long surrounded these dramatic events
  • Clearly shows how simple judgements about the operation - whether pro or contra - are neither possible nor fair
  • Reveals for the first time the secret machinations that led to Churchill's removal from office - including the high-level leaks fuelling the press campaign to drive Churchill from power
  • Untangles Churchill's complicated relationship with the dynamic Admiral Jacky Fisher - and Fisher's covert campaign to undermine the Dardanelles campaign
  • Tells the perhaps even more important story of Churchill after the Dardanelles - and his decades-long battle to defend his record over the campaign
