This book is part of a series by well-known genealogy expert Simon Fowler. The aim of the books is to help the family historian trace a relative who served in a particular battle or campaign, and give them some wider context to make sense of what they did in that action. This Gallipoli volume starts with an overview of the Gallipoli Campaign, takes some examples of what soldiers did at Gallipoli and then chapters follow which give a lead in how to research those who took part in the fighting here in 1915. The Royal Navy is covered as well as the army, and there is also a chapter on Commonwealth troops. The book ends with some leads on visiting the Gallipoli battlefields. An excellent one-stop volume giving useful context and excellent information on researching your Gallipoli ancestors. (description from Pen & Sword website)
