Gallipoli Campaign (3/10)

List item

The most pointless slaughter in British military history, the Gallipoli campaign was a programme designed to relieve pressure on the European theatres of the war by going through and knocking out the Turkish Ottoman Empire. In a showing of military incompetence that resulted from arrogant racial beliefs about their enemies general mishandling of offensives and stubbornness towards admitting defeat, the Gallipoli campaign resulted in nearly 500,000 casualties on both sides.
