In 1915, Britain's political and military leaders began to realise that the war would be long and costly. Casualties were increasing on the western front as the fighting became bogged down in the stalemate of trench warfare.
British, Empire and French leaders began to look for other ways to attack the enemy and possibly achieve a knockout blow. The First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, put forward a daring plan to attack Germany's ally, Turkey. In this case study are a range of sources that help to tell the story of that campaign at Gallipoli.
You will probably find it helpful to study the Background before you start looking at the sources.
