This the 94th anniversary of Gallipoli war during 1st world war. On April 25, 1915, a force of British Empire and French troops landed at multiple places along the Gallipoli peninsula. The battles over the next eight months saw high casualties on both sides due to the exposed terrain, weather and closeness of the front lines. In addition, many casualties resulted from an epidemic of dysentery, caused by poor sanitary conditions. This war is accepted as a turning point for our (future) nation and Australians and New Zealanders see it as the beginnings of the ANZAC spirit. the peninsula is visited by many people from all around the world and some ceremonies performed.
I hope it never happens again...
