The Great War - February 23, 2016
This episode examines the war in the Middle East. With the Western Front dominating the minds of generals and statesmen, they sought a back door to victory. The Dardanelles expedition of 1915 had been one attempt to find such a solution. The campaigns in the Middle East - in Egypt, Palestine, and Mesopotamia - were another. By October 1918 the Allies had captured Aleppo and Baghdad at a cost of 164,000 casualties, but were still far from Turkey's heartland.
