Gallipoli Campaign

The Gallipoli Campaign was launched by the British and French in April, 1915.  The goal was to capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople and secure the Dardanelles Strait to create a sea route to the Russian Empire.  The campaign involved a naval attack and multiple landings.  Ultimately the Allies abandoned the campaign in January, 1916 and the Ottomans were victorious.
