Summary
"Gallipoli demolishes the myths about poor planning, wrong beaches and British generals sending the ANZACs to certain death. While there has been much focus on the battle for Gallipoli, little attention has been paid to the planning that preceded it. The landing was one of the most complex and daunting operations in the history of warfare and the risks associated with it were enormous. The Turks knew the attack was coming and had plenty of time to prepare. Gallipoli from above is a 54-minute documentary that follows the Australian officers who planned the landing at Anzac Cove and the air-crews whose flimsy flying machines brought back the much needed information upon which those plans were based. Unlike the British the ANZAC's decided on a night-time surprise attach. As a result, the Australians came ashore with only minor casualties. By contrast, the English officers in change of the Cape Helles landing ignored the aerial intelligence and approached the shore in daylight after an ineffective bombardment. Their men paid a terrible price. Gallipoli from above will rewrite the Gallipoli story by showing how the myth of bronzed ANZACs and blundering Brits has failed to do justice to the skills and innovation of Australian leadership. This was the first chapter in the story of the Australian Army's achievements in World War I, achievements that would give Australia confidence in itself, and the world confidence in Australia."--Container
