The Story of Dunsterforce - Stalky's Forlorn Hope by Captain Savige MC
The Story of Dunsterforce - the amazing story of the intervention in Persia/Iraq/and the trans-Caucasia to try to prevent German and Turkish troops capturing Baku and entering Persia. The rather grandiose objective of this military force was to aid the establishment and maintenance of an independent group of nations - Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan (Transcaucasia). It was hoped that by so doing this would avert the invasion of British India via Persia by a joint German and Turkish Army. The authorisation to create of a force (39 Brigade) to carry out this mission was given to a Russian speaking British officer, Major-General L.C. Dunsterville; said to be Rudyard Kipling's inspiration for the character 'Stalky'. The force included Australian and NZ troops. This ebook includes photos, maps and a description of the campaign as well as a transcription of the book on the campaign - "Stalky's Forlorn Hope" by Captain Savige MC. Included also is a copy of CE Bean's report - "Australians in the Transcaucasus", a report and photos on the campaign from Hammerton's "Great War" and a report and photos from the Times "History of the War" on this campaign. A campaign that rings down through the years to today where the conflict between the Kurds, Armenians, Arabs, Iranians, Turks etc still rages. Fantastic reading of a brave attempt to deal with the enormous forces at work on this frontier. Tragic in it's scope and the fate of the Assyrian Christians, Armenians and Kurds.Masses of reading, maps and pictures
