The Gallipoli Peninsula is located in Turkey, separating the Aegean Sea from the Dardanelles, a strait connecting the Aegean Sea to the Sea of Marmara. It gained historical significance during World War I when Allied forces, primarily from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, and France, launched a campaign against the Ottoman Empire in 1915. The aim was to secure the Dardanelles, capture Constantinople (Istanbul), and establish a sea route to Russia. However, the campaign resulted in a prolonged and costly stalemate, marked by intense trench warfare and heavy casualties on both sides. The Gallipoli Campaign, while ultimately unsuccessful for the Allies, left a profound impact on the national identities of Australia and New Zealand, shaping the ANZAC spirit and fostering a sense of national consciousness. Today, the Gallipoli Peninsula is a site of pilgrimage and remembrance, with numerous memorials and cemeteries honoring the soldiers who fought and died there.
