More than a Sideshow?


Recommended Posts

Vi segnalo che sul numero 1 (gennaio 2017) di War in history è stato pubblicato un articolo che analizza la strategia del HQ britannico nell'organizzazione dello sbarco nella baia di Suvla.

L'autore è Jeff Cleverly


Di seguito l'abstract


This paper will examine decision making at GHQ during the planning for the landing of Lieutenant General Sir Frederick Stopford’s IX Corps at Suvla Bay during the MEF’s August offensive. It will show how Hamilton’s expectation that IX Corps would combine closely with ANZAC in a decisive offensive was at odds with the more discreet and limited role for IX Corps expected by his operations staff. This divergence of views at GHQ and Hamilton’s subsequent remoteness from Stopford ensured that it was his staff’s defensive interpretation that was passed on to Stopford and IX Corps.
