BATTLE OF GALLIPOLI 1915
The Gallipoli or Dardanelles Campaign took place in the Ottoman Empire between April 1915 and January 1916. The operations consisted of a joint British and French mission to capture the capital of Istanbul and secure a sea route to Russia.
On 25 April, at approximately 4.15am on a still spring night, with the sea mist rising, members of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) landed at Gallipoli together with troops from New Zealand, Britain, and France. It was shortly after this landing that the high command realised that the men had disembarked in the wrong position. Instead of facing the friendly topography south of Anzac Cove, they faced the precipitous area of the north.
Inhospitable terrain, miserable conditions and horrendous casualties were characteristic of the campaign, which ended with the withdrawal of allied troops. For the Turkish people, Gallipoli was a defining moment in their history. Likewise, the Gallipoli campaign resonated profoundly among Australians. The campaign marked the first major battle undertaken by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and is considered a landmark in the development of the Australian identity.
Anzac Day, April 25, remains a deeply significant commemoration, honouring the military service, suffering and sacrifice of those involved.
