akifemre Posted 17 November , 2013 Share Posted 17 November , 2013 Dear Friends, We present you an exclusive interview with Peter Hart, Military Historian and has numerous books and articles about Great War and its fronts including Gallipoli Campaign. He speaks to Turkish media first time. In this interview, he makes clear that Gallipoli campaign was a disastrous mistake from start to finish and had no tenable objectives. He stressed that British accounts have perhaps over-exaggerated the importance of Liman von Sanders and other German commanders. As to Great War Commomerations he said: “I would prefer to treat the Great War and Gallipoli as historical events to be studied and understood rather than celebrated or commemorated. Centenaries are mere excuses for morbid sentimentality; they have no meaning other than an arbitrary number of years since the event concerned.” This interview has been translated into Turkish by M. Onur Yurdal and Kayıhan Kabadayı and was also aired at the same time.
