Had necessity arisen he could have decanted but half of Asia into the thick end of the bottle whose neck we might grasp by the merest pinch. 4. and even when, weeks later, the beach itseld had been occupied -- and the price paid -- still more man-power and more was being poured into the melting pot. 5. With the Crescent we had no quarrel, and Red Cross and Crescent blended in splendid relief to the horrors of the struggle. 6. German science and Turkish gallantry had combined in an alliance fatal to our dreams. 7. While the brunt of the first tremendous losses of the Landing had fallen upon the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps with a backing of the 29th. Division and other Imperial Troops, there were plenty of others who came only a little later. 8. The Turks had threatened to drive the Infidels into the Sea.
