Image: Photograph of ANZAC Beach, Gallipoli Peninsula
Photograph of ANZAC Beach, Gallipoli Peninsula
Churchill had originally tried to force passage through the Dardanelles Strait by ships alone. When this failed, landings became inevitable. Allied troops went ashore on April 25, 1915, and suffered heavy losses. This photograph depicts the beachhead and hints at the rugged terrain of the Gallipoli Peninsula that contributed to the failure of subsequent operations.
