Over 8,000 Australian soldiers died in the Gallipoli campaign, and even though the campaign was a military failure, the ANZAC legend was formed. Australia was a young nation and the courage and character shown by Australians at Gallipoli was quickly recognised and honored back home. The Battle of Gallipoli took place at Gallipoli from April 1915 to December 1915 during the First World War. A joint Imperial British and French operation was mounted to capture the Ottoman capital of Istanbul and provide a secure sea route for military and agricultural trade with the Russians. The attempt failed, with heavy casualties on both sides. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) In Turkey, the campaign is known as the Çanakkale Savaşları, after the province of Çanakkale. In the United Kingdom, it is called the Dardanelles Campaign or Gallipoli. In France it is called Les Dardanelles. In Australia, New Zealand and Newfoundland it is known as the Gallipoli Campaign or simply as Gallipoli. The Battle of Gallipoli resonated profoundly among all nations involved. To this day, ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day is commemorated in Australia and New Zealand (2,721 New Zealand soldiers died at Gallipoli), the battle often considered to mark the birth of the national consciousness of each nation, replacing their former collectivised identity under the British Empire. In Turkey, the battle is perceived as a defining moment in the history of the Turkish people - a final surge in the defense of the motherland as the centuries-old Ottoman Empire was crumbling. The struggle laid the grounds for the Turkish War of Independence and the foundation of the Turkish Republic eight years later under Atatürk, himself a commander at Galipoli. The song on this video is a national war memorial song and a tribute to the ANZAC spirit of mateship, courage, and sacrifice. The song is timeless and honours the memory of those who have died in the service and defence of Australia in war. The marching theme of the song is especially powerful and supports the spirit of ANZAC Day.

GALLIPOLI 1915 - 2015, 100 Years - The 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Campaign (1915 - 2015) will be a significant commemorative event for Australia and even though it is five years away, discussion is already taking place regarding what events, like the idea of an AFL ANZAC Day match between Essendon and Collingwood being played in Instanbul. It has been stated that how we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Campaign will set the tone of Anzac Day commemorations for the next 100 years. Tourism to Turkey will also increase for this important anniversary in Australia's history. Travel and tour companies are already presenting and planning tours for Gallipoli 2015. A commission is to be headed by Bob Hawke and Malcolm Fraser and will decide the most appropriate way to commemorate the Anzac Day centenary in 2015. The Australian public can make submissions to the commission, which will also include RSL national president Ken Doolan. Suggestions include raising the AE2 submarine in the Dardanelles Strait, the building of a new war memorial annexe, or ANZAC scholarships. The task of the commission will be to call for submissions from across the nation on how Australia can most appropriately mark this important centenary.
