Descripción de editorial
The 1917 Palestine campaign saw Britain’s Army rise from defeat to achieve stunning victory.
After two failed attacks on Gaza using tactics employed on the Western Front, a new commander was appointed. General Allenby reinvigorated the Army and led it to stunning success in the Third Battle of Gaza. This offensive would see an innovative use of cavalry and all-arms co-operation push the Ottoman defenders all the way back to Jerusalem. This campaign is seldom examined outside of dry assessments of strategy and movements, or studies of T.E. Lawrence’s peripheral role. This work will bring the campaign to life in a broader and deeper sense, analysing the ‘war fighting’ and logistical aspects while also telling the stories of the men who lived and fought in the harsh desert conditions. As well as military historians, this work is aimed at the growing market of genealogists beginning to explore this theatre.
