There is no shortage of books on the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign of 1915 but this one stands out. In it Geoffrey Moorhouse moves the focus from the more familar aspects to concentrate on one small mill town, Bury, in Lancashire, and to anatomize the long-lasting effect the Dardanelles had on it. By May 1915, some 7,000 Bury men had already gone to war, to be followed by many others before Armistice Day. This terrifying sacrifice left its mark on the town & Bury commemorates Gallipoli on a scale similar to Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand. review >>> Moorhouse offers one of the most fascinating revelations of the orthodox British spirit, religious, political and social . . . This book makes wonderful reading.' Ronald Blythe, Sunday Times 256pp 700g packed/carded for post
