[edit] Information

Gallipoli was a catastrophe for the same reason so many battles of WWI were catastrophes: bad planning, poor leadership by the generals, a failure to follow the battle plan, tons of errors in judgment and execution in the fog of war, with all these failures leading to the same bloody frontal assaults in the face of machine guns by lightly armed infantry. The Aussies proved themselves to be strong and brave, as they have always been and continue to be. All the arguments in the world can be made about willingness to engage, although you have to resist conflating WWI with other wars. But the lesson of Gallipoli is the same sad lesson of the rest of WWI: that millions of lives can be wasted for no tangible gain when brave and strong men follow nonsensical orders by clueless superiors, in a war that made no sense from the beginning.
