With nearly two mounted divisions engaged against the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East for almost three years the Palestine Campaign was Australia's longest running militarily significant endeavour of the First World War after the Western Front.

Challenge of Battle: The British Army's Baptism of Fire in the First World War

By: Adrian Gilbert

Price: $24.95

Publisher: UK, Osprey Publishing, 2015


In this timely new book, Adrian Gilbert clears away the layers of sentiment that have obscured a true historical understanding of the 1914 campaign to provide a full, unvarnished picture of the British Expeditionary Force at war. Previous assessments of the BEF have held to an unshakeable belief in its exceptional performance during the battles of 1914.

By: Angus Konstam

Price: $24.95

Publisher: UK, Osprey Publishing, 2015


In the early 20th century Britain's largest colonies established their own small naval presence, and their ships fought alongside the Royal Navy during World War I. These fleets were expanded during the inter-war years, and in 1939 the Royal Australian Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal New Zealand Navy willingly joined the fight on behalf of the British Commonwealth. For the most part these small navies consisted of a few cruisers and destroyers, designed to pr... View more info

Gallipoli: An Australian Medical Perspective #1 Australian Army Combat Support Series

By: Mike Tyquin

Price: $19.95

Publisher: Australia, Big Sky Publishing, 2012


To be successful, a modern army needs logistical support to survive - to arm, feed, transport, and care for its soldiers. As history shows us the maintenance of health in any army , is a key factor in warfare. In many respects the Gallipoli campaign was a doomed undertaking. The seeds of ultimate defeat in December 1915 were the risks that attended a hugely ambitious, complex, and large-scale amphibious operation - the landings on well-defended shores on the Gallipoli pe...

Gallipoli: Command Under Fire

By: Edward J. Erickson

Price: $39.95

Publisher: UK, Osprey Publishing, 2015


Unique among World War I campaigns, the fighting at Gallipoli brought together a modern amphibious assault and multi-national combined operations. It took place on a landscape littered with classical and romantic sites - just across the Dardanelles from the ruins of Homer's Troy. The campaign became, perhaps, the greatest 'what if' of the war. The concept behind it was grand strategy of the highest order, had it been successful it might have led to conditions ending the ... View more info

By: Prit Buttar

Publisher: UK, Osprey Publishing, 2015


The massive offensives on the Eastern Front during 1915 are often overshadowed by the events in Western Europe, but the scale and ferocity of the clashes between Imperial Germany, Hapsburg Austria-Hungary and Tsarist Russia were greater than anything seen on the Western Front and ultimately as important to the final outcome of the war. Now, with the work of internationally renowned Eastern Front expert Prit Buttar, this story of the unknown side of World War I is finally... View more info

Ottoman Navy Warships 1914-18 #227 New Vanguard

By: Ryan K. Noppen

Price: $24.95

Publisher: UK, Osprey Publishing, 2015


At the start of the 20th century the Ottoman Navy was a shadow of its former might, a reflection of the empire as a whole - the "Sick Man of Europe". Years of defeat, nepotism, and neglect had left the Ottoman Navy with a mix of obsolete vessels, whilst the list of prospective enemies was ever-growing. An increasing Russian naval presence in the Black Sea and the alarming emergence of Italy and Greece as regional Naval powers proved beyond all doubt that intensive modern... View more info
