Gallipoli Anzacs - Canakkale - Turkey
Gallipoli Cemetery Turkey

The slim peninsula on the northern side of the Dardanelles has been designated a National Park.

In 1915, Allied warships tried to force their way through the straits with the intention of opening a supply line to Russia via the Black Sea. Allied landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula were finally beaten off by the Turks following bitter warfare.

Casualties were high on both sides and today several war memorials stand in the attractive landscape of pine forests, green hills and pretty beaches.
