1915 was a year which offered little prospect of success for the Allies but endless fascination for the student today.  Was British military leadership inept, employing unimaginative, provenly unsuccessful tactics time and again?  The offensives on the Western Front and on the Gallipoli Peninsula are often quoted as prime examples of this, so many months before the claimed notoriety of the Somme.  Is this a fair assessment or do such charges fail properly to understand the nature of the problem facing a High Command inexorably committed to attack?
