The Gallipoli Campaign Mar-Dec 1915

The landing at Gallipoli on 25th April 1915 has entered Australian folklore and is the focus of remembrance across Australia each year.  The term ANZAC is synonymous with courage, devotion to duty and mateship.

For the Australians, the campaign lasted from April to December 1915.

Inexperienced Australian commanders made tactical errors on the first day which saw the Turks restricting the ANZAC troops to a narrow beach head.

The August Offensives resulted in success for the Australians at Lone Pine and tragedy at The Nek.

The evacuation without loss in December was the most successful element of the Campaign.
