Based on exclusive access to Turkish archives, Defending Gallipoli reveals how the Turks reacted and defended Gallipoli. Author and Turkish language expert Harvey Broadbent spent five years translating everything from official records to soldiers' personal diaries and letters to unearth the Turkish story.

It is chilling and revealing to see this famous battle in Australian history through the 'enemy' lens. The book commences with a jihad, which sees the soldiers fighting for country and God together. But it also humanises the Turkish soldiers, naming them, revealing their emotions, and ultimately shows how the Allies totally misunderstood and underestimated them.

This book was released to coincide with the  Centenary of the Anzac Landing in 2015. It has received many credits including one from Australian military historian David Horner who endorsed it with comment as " Groundbreaking and Illuminating " and General Sir Peter Cosgrove said," A Truely Commendable work of military and cultural history"..
