The Mediterranean Front 1914-1923 (4) (Essential Histories) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The First World War in the Mediterranean represented more than just a peripheral theatre to the war on the western front. This engaging volume includes details of allied attempts to capture Constantinople; bloody campaigning in Northern Italy; the defence of the Suez Canal and the defeat of the Turkish army in Palestine. The Arab revolt, skirmishes in North Africa and the entrapment of a huge allied garrison in Greece - the 'worlds biggest prison camp' as the Germans described it - are also covered. The result was the fall of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires and the birth of nations unknown in 1914.

Synopsis:

One of four volumes on World War I, this work examines the Mediterranean Front between 1914 and 1923. It covers: allied attempts to capture Constantinople; campaigning in northern Italy; the defence of the Suez Canal; the Arab Revolt; skirmishes in North Africa; and more.

Synopsis:

Michael Hickey joined the army in 1947 and served in Korea, East Africa, Suez and Aden. Before his retirement in 1981 he was Colonel GS Ministry of Defence. He has written a number of books, including ‘Out of the Sky, a history of airborne warfare, and ‘Gallipoli (John Murray, 1995). In 2000 he was awarded the Westminster medal for Military Literature. His hobbies include cooking, brewing, walking and travel, and he is a guest lecturer on Holt's battlefield tours. Michael Hickey is married with two sons, two dogs and a domesticated turkey, and lives in Winchester.
