The latest issue of the Finest Hour: The Journal of Winston Churchill was recently published and is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the Dardanelles campaign. As First Lord of the Admiralty in the Asquith cabinet, Winston Churchill instigated the campaign that eventually ended in failure and tarnished his career. Articles are included on the role of the French at the Dardanelles, an Australian perspective on the campaign, and an analysis of Churchill’s strategy in the Mediterranean during the two world wars. Other articles included in the issue are on the naval base at Scapa Flow, Singapore, and Churchill and T.E. Lawrence. The Finest Hour web site is here.
