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.
