From the preface:

"My main reason for writing this book
is that the greatest attack that was made on
the Peninsula has never been personally
described by a combatant, viz., the attack on
Achi Baba on May 8th; we were too far
ahead for any reporter to get up to our lines.
In my notes you will read about Suvla
Bay and " Lone Pine," but, believe me, they
were "birthdays" compared with the attack
on Achi Baba.
Some people will tell you that the Galli-
poli campaign has been a failure. These
people think that to be successful in a war
you have to take huge tracts of land or thou-
sands of prisoners and large quantities of
munitions. They are wrong. We knew that
we had been successful, and I will tell you the
reason why we claim to have been successful.


We have kept an army of Turks number-
ing more than two hundred and fifty thousand
occupied on the Peninsula, and have kept
them from fighting on other frontiers.
The Germans said, if we waited till 1920
we would never land there. We landed in
five minutes".
