Anglo-Turkish relations in the inter-war period have so far been discussed almost entirely in political and military terms. Such an approach is not only old-fashioned, it is insufficient. Here we will move toward a more sophisticated model. This discussion began with the question of why the tripartite alliance of 1939 failed to function. Having come this far, it seems possible to set forth some of the causes of failure, which, if not corporately the entire cause, were at least more than sufficient.

Divided into three parts, The Ill-Made Alliance examines the roots and course of the Anglo-Turkish rapprochement in the years 1934-38; the economic, military, and politic factors in 1938-39 that inhibited development of the emerging alliance to the point where it might have been fully functional; and the collapse of the alliance in 1939-40.

While previous accounts suggest that Turkey entered into the alliance reluctantly, Millman contends that it not only wanted an alliance but sought as close a relationship as Britain would concede in the prewar years. He attributes the failure of the alliance mainly to Britain's lack of support, namely its inability to fit Turkey into its strategy in the Mediterranean, its failure to produce a coherent operational plan that could encompass Turkish military co-operation, and its unwillingness to provide Turkey with timely and much-needed financial, material, and industrial assistance. Divided into three parts, The Ill-Made Alliance examines the roots and course of the Anglo-Turkish rapprochement in the years 1934-38; the economic, military, and politic factors in 1938-39 that inhibited development of the emerging alliance to the point where it might have been fully functional; and the collapse of the alliance in 1939-40.

Although I would not pretend to be an expert in any way on this area of history, I found Prof Millman's book provides an invaluable foundation for study in this area; set as it is during the turbulent period in the lead up to the Second World War. Easily read, the book provides the best introduction to the era for the novice but includes sufficient detail to be of use to the scholar as well. The references are comprehensive and indicates the high level of research scrutiny Prof Millman has applied to his subject. For the life of me however, I cannot understand the excerpt concerning Gen Geo S Patton being caught with his pants down; out of gin; minus his cigarettes with some bimbo on the roof of the King David Hotel, Cairo - still this is but a small diversion in what will be required reading across many a campus!

The best book on British policy in the Mediterranean immediately before the Second World War in existence. Probably one of the best in English on Turkish Foreign Policy in the Ataturk period. Particularly valuable in that the focus is not limited to high politics.
