By drawing on Hayden White's theory of history as narrative and Mikhail Bakhtin's theoretical framework that empowers the dialogical relationship between novels written on Gallipoli, this chapter examines the ways in which fictional stories recreate Gallipoli and present an alternative discourse to the grand historical narratives. Hayden White's narrative theory of history has focused intently on the alternative ways of representation as history is associated with fiction. While novelists activate historical discourse on the Gallipoli Campaign they also question the blurred boundary between fiction and history. The chapter explains Orwell's concept of history as "palimpsest" in 1984, Scates points to the ideological and political manipulation of historical facts in history writing which is closer to fiction writing. History and fiction overlap during the emplotment process, as historian and writer are both human agencies with different backgrounds. Uzuner's emplotment involves lengthy historical research for the credibility of her fiction, unlike Scates, who writes with academic expertise.
