Battle of Gallipoli

The Battle of Gallipoli was a campaign that included numerous engagements on the Gallipoli Peninsula in the Dardanelles as British forces attempted to secure a maritime route to Russia. The campaign was waged unsuccessfully from March 1915 to January 1916 and included a failed naval attack on strong Ottoman positions. This was followed by the landings of British Commonwealth troops at Helle and an inlet that later became known as ANZAC Cove. Months of indecisive fighting followed, and by the time Commonwealth forces were withdrawn each side had sustained casualties in excess of 250,000 men.
