This volume opens with background on the geography of the country, the pre-war political scene, the Turks, the Indian Army and the inception of the operations. The history of the campaign opens with the landing of Force D in Mesopotamia in November 1914, the occupation of Basra and capture of Qurna. It covers the defeat of the Turkish counter-offensive, the capture of Amara in June 1915 and on to the Battle of Kut in September, concluding with the situation at the beginning of October 1915.
