New book, 422 pages. From the author of 36 Days comes the dramatic and almost unknown account of the war fought high above the Gallipoli peninsula. More than 2000 missions were flown by the aviators of both sides, with fragile seaplanes, aeroplanes and balloons of the Allies battling both the elements and the Turkish Air Service. Whether flying reconnaissance missions, acting as artillery observers for the guns of the Royal Navy or bombing Turkish targets, the men who manned these frail machines had a remarkable impact on the campaign that until now has never been properly brought to light. Using meticulous research and the diaries and accounts of the combatants, this is a fascinating new front in the well-known Gallipoli story.
