100 years ago today: Allied forces start attack on the Dardenelles in Turkey

The attack started on March 18, 1915. As you know from history and the film Gallipoli (which documents the disaster on April 25) it did not go well for the Allies.

Mark Steyn: Gallipoli landings remembered


  1. The big battles of WW I are all going to be revisited in the coming years. Kudos to you for getting a head start.

  2. As in the Big One, Winnie thought the Soft Underbelly was.


    More to the point, Gallipoli made the cardinal mistake of amphibious ops - move inshore and expand the beachhead.
