From Ulster to the Dardanelles

The Local Impact of the Gallipoli Campaign
By Philip Orr, Nigel Henderson



From Ulster to the Dardanelles focuses on several individuals from the nine-county province of Ulster, who served in the Gallipoli Campaign during the First World War. The book explains why so many Irish soldiers fought there, what happened to them, and why their involvement in the Gallipoli campaign came to be almost forgotten.

Published to mark the centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign, this book is written not for the specialist but for the general reader who would like to know more about the role this corner of Ireland played in that conflict. Teachers wanting to inform their pupils about the war and its connections with a specific locality should find this volume especially useful. This short book, expertly designed by John McMillan, is lavishly illustrated in colour. The photographs, recruiting posters, artefacts and newspaper excerpts are as informative as the text and have been sourced from various museums and archives.
