The Gallipoli peninsula is located in East Thrace (or Turkish Thrace), the European part of Turkey, with Dardanelles strait to the east and Aegean Sea to the west. Gallipoli derives its name from Greek "Kallipolis", meaning "Beautiful City". It was known as the Thracian Chersonese in antiquity. The peninsula runs in south-westerly direction into Aegean Sea, between Hellespont (now famous as the Dardanelles) and Melas bay (today Saros bay). Close to Agora it was protected by a wall across its breadth.
In early 1915, trying to seize an advantage by capturing Constantinople during World War I, the British authorised attack on the Gallipoli peninsula. The first Australian troops arrived on April 25, 1915 and after 8 months of fighting, were withdrawn. This campaign was one of the most important Ottoman victories during the war. It is considered an Allied failure.
