This book concentrates on Gully Ravine and its immediate area on the western side of the Helles battlefield, Gallipoli. "...Death was at work there,...Death lived there,...Death wandered up and down there and fed on Life." (John Masefield). Here trench fighting raged throughout the campaign, culminating in the Battle of Gully Ravine between 28 June and 5 July 1915. This attack was a successful piece of planning and execution, enabling the British to capture five lines of Turkish trenches, seriously threatening the Turkish hold on the southern tip of the peninsula.
