Product Description
The Gallipoli Campaign, also known as the Dardanelles Campaign, was an unsuccessful attempt by the Allied Powers to control the sea route from Europe to Russia. The campaign began with a failed naval attack by British and French ships on the Dardanelles Straits in February-March and continued with a major land invasion of the Gallipoli Peninsula on April 25, involving British, French troops, and divisions of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Lack of sufficient intelligence, knowledge of the terrain, along with a fierce Turkish resistance, hampered the success of the invasion.

In May 1915, Britain's First Sea Lord Admiral John Fisher resigned dramatically over the mishandling of the Gallipoli Invasion by First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill. His political capital damaged by the debacle, the future prime minister later resigned his own position and accepted a commission to command an infantry battalion in France.
