Abstract

ELIA, RICARDO H.. THE RISK OF CROSSING THE DARDANELLES. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2016, n.35, pp.287-303. ISSN 0718-8471.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712016000100015.

From the anarchic Persian hordes of Xerxes to the phlegmatic British battalions of Churchill, the attempt to crossing the Dardanelles has resulted not only challenging but costly and deadly. Paradoxically, the only harmless to jump from Europe to Asia was Alexander the Great to begin the victorious conquest of the Achaemenid Empire.

Keywords : Strait; underpass; crossroad; Hellespontic; strategic.
