Dear friends,

The Real Time Gallipoli Campaign twitter Project has been started today morning(18 March) by Turkey's history magazine "NTV Tarih". This twitter project has been directed by Gürsel Göncü , Chief Editor of NTV History Magazine.

Turkish section is being written by Sahin Aldoğan, retired navy officer and military historian.He has studied the Gallipoli Battlefields since 1965. He has written hundreds of articles on Gallipoli Campaign and worked as voluntary consultant. Along with fellow historian Gürsel Göncü, Aldoğan has written two books: Beyond the trench Motherland and Gallipoli Battlefield Guide.

English section is being written by Bill Selllars , Australian journalist and military historian who has lived Turkey since 1995. For the last ten years, he has lived in Eceabat on the Gallipoli Peninsula where is a town close to the battlefields of 1915. Bill haswritten many articles and appeared many documentaries on the Gallipoli Campaign. He is currently conducting research for a book on ships sunk in 1915.

TRIBUTE: This Project has dedicated to the memories ofTurkish and allied soldiers ; every Mehmet, Tommy, Digger,Abdul and Poilu that fought at Gallipoli , and for Jul Snelders , a Belgian military historian, one of the leading Gallipoli Campaign specialist (1948-2006)

This is a very interesting idea, could be taken forward for the 100th with many contributors doing a moment by moment 'real time' WWI. timeline.
