Across the Dardanelles on the European side lies the battlefield of Gallipoli, known as Gelibolu in Turkey. İn 1915-1916 seeing an opportunity to secure the Balkan front, Winston Churchill proposed that Britain use its superior naval forces to launch an attack on the Dardanelles. The navy would then conquer İstanbul drive Turkey out of the war and open communications with Russia. The navy was bombarded at the narrowest part of strait so the British navy turned its forces to the peninsula. The British high command sent wave after wave of Australian, New Zealander and British troops aganist the highly fortified Turkish position here, with brutal losses. This battle launched its hero – Ataturk on a rapid rise to this his status as Turkey’s founding father. Each year thousands of Australian and New Zealanders make pilgrimages to war cemeteries here where 22.000 dead allies lay buried. There is a special dawn ceremony at the cove.
