Notes

First edition in English, first impression, in a particularly attractive example of the jacket. Hans Kannengiesser commanded the Turkish 9th Division at Gallipoli, which was part of the Fifth Army under Liman von Sanders. This is one of the most important accounts of the campaign from the German standpoint: "Kannengiesser's book, Gallipoli: Bedeutung und Verlaf der Kämpfe 1915, published in 1927 in Berlin, provided interesting insights into the military capability of Turks, the temperament of Turkish soldiers, and relations between Turkish and German officers" (Sagona, Atabay, Mackie, McGibbon, Reid eds, Anzac Battlefield: A Gallipoli Landscape of War and Memory, CUP 2016, p. 57).
