Episode Summary

The Gallipoli Mystery
By 1915, trench warfare in Europe was deadlocked and the Allies decided to try and defeat Germany by the backdoor. The plan was to attack the weak Turkish empire in the Middle East. By using Naval power and an amphibious landing, the Allies hoped to seize control of the Peninsula of Gallipoli at the entrance to the Black Sea. However, what actually happened was an unmitigated disaster. This programme takes the viewer behind the scenes to explore the reasons for the failure of the Dardanelles campaign.moreless
