The Battle Of Gallipoli

Backround of the Gallipoli Campaign

The war was a campign during WWI fought by the Allied forces (British Empire, France, Australia and New Zeland) against the Central Powers (Ottmon Empire, Germany). Britian and France launched a attack at the Gallipoli Peninsula in order to capture the Ottman Empire capital, Constantinople.

Strategy of the Gallipoli Campaign

The idea to attack the Ottoman Empire was made by Sir Winston Churchill. His plan was to make the central powers fight a another war, while Germany was already fighting a two front war agianst France and Russia. For the Germans to help assist the Ottmans, they had to split their army even further, this would leave their other fronts weakened. Australia and New Zeland formed an army known as ANZAC, to attack from the ground while France and Britan fought from sea. Ths later was proved to be completly disastrous for the allies, as they underestimated the ability of the Turks which led to many casualties.
