Gallipoli campaign

The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 was an Allied attempt to force Ottoman Turkey out of World War I. The allies attempted to gain control of the Dardanelles, the western section of the straits seperating Europe from Asia Minor. On April 25, 1915 Allied troops landed at several points near the Gallipoli peninsula. Each side suffered about 250,000 casualties before the allies withdrew in January 1916.
