Since I have many muslim buddies, some of them turkish, I raise my glass in memory of the german-turkish win of the battle at Anzac-Cove! Eventually it was not the Anzac, who led the battle, but this jerk of a general, Lord Hamilton, who considered landing tactics of the Crimean War would be appropriate at Canakkale too. So wrong!!! So, Anzacs, blame Hamilton for your defeat.

Turkish win. It was Mustafa Kemal who as a young officer made his name by leading the defence of Gallipoli. This began the rise of the man who became known as Attaturk, father of modern Turkey.
The attack was just another example of the tragedy of a war over imperial ambitions waged by the European powers.
