Gallipoli


The Gallipoli Campaign was conducted between 25th April 1915 and 9th January 1916. The offensive ended in defeat for the Allied forces, who had to withdraw to Egypt after failing to secure the northern bank of the Dardanelles and the city of Constantinople (modern day Istanbul).

The after effects of the campaign were highly significant - it was a major factor in the Turkish War of Independence and also led to a growing sense of independence for Australia and New Zealand, who still commemorate their role to this day on ANZAC day.
