Palestine - the Ottoman Campaigns of 1914-1918, Edward J. Erickson.
An interesting study of the Ottoman side of the Palestinian campaigns
of 1915-1918, looking at the failed Ottoman attacks on the Suez canal,
the first two unsuccessful British attacks on Gaza and Allenby's
successful campaign that eventually forced the Ottomans to sue for
peace. A useful book somewhat marred by the author's approach to the
Armenian Genocide, which is briefly discussed as if it was a valid
response to a major security threat instead of a deliberate genocide
ordered from above.
