  1. 1. The Battle of Gallipoli(1915-1916) is a sea and land war that is during World War I, between the Ottoman Empire and the Allies.
  2. 2. The Allies wanted to defeat the capital of the Ottoman Empire (İstanbul), to seize the straits of the Dardanelles and the strait of İstanbul to open the path to a safe military and food assistance so they decided the first target as the straits of the Dardanelles.
  3. 3. The Gallipoli Campaign cost the Allies 141,113 killed and wounded and the Turks 195,000. Gallipoli proved to be the Turks' greatest victory of the war.
