Harold Rydon's views on the Gallipoli
Lance-Corporal Harold Rydon kept a diary of his time at Gallipoli which
he later expanded to include his views on the failure of the Gallipoli
campaign, posing and answering the three questions:
- "Why was the Gallipoli campaign a failure?" -
"Could it have been a success?" - "Was it ever really intended to
meet its main objective..." ● You will find this section about
three-quarters of the way through the diary, under the heading
"SUMMARY". If you use the
online version, see pages 77-79. ●
For more information about Harold Rydon's diary see our
Gallipoli diaries page.

(But note that although these videos focus on the Anzacs they take an
overall British perspective.)
