Limited food, dead bodies of soldiers everywhere, smelly, flies everwhere including their food.
As Australians we view Gallipoli as our victory, which shaped the legend of the ANZACS, but the Gallipoli campaign was actually a miserable failure. Thousands of our soldiers were killed, and no ground was gained. The whole point of the campaign was to secure for the allies the Dardenelles, so that supplies could be taken straight through the Dardanelles to Constantinople in Russia. Before this, it wasn't possible. From the start, the campaign went wrong. On the night of 25 April (Anzac Day), the Australians landed on the shores of Gallipoli in Turkey. Yet, they landed a couple kms downstream from where they were planned to land. As a result, they faced the ready Turkish troops, and high, rocky cliffs, rather than the sandy beaches as first planned. The rest of the battle was a bloody mess and complete failure. Over the few months we were there, thousands were killed by disease and the machine guns of the enemy, and virtually no ground was gained. So, overnight, the soldiers evacuated from there. The Turks never figured it out until a few days later, thanks to a new contraption the Australians invented to make the guns keep firing.
No Australian soldiers have died in actual combat in Iraq. Reason being they are intentionally kept out of the hot spots.
hard deathly sad bad mean scaryAustralian soldiers had it very tough in Gallipoli.Food and water was very scarce and personal hygiene was not a top priority like it is today. When signing up soldiers had no idea what they were getting themselves into. The soldiers would go through winter months with the same clothes they had for the summer months. Some would get very sick and die of their illness before even getting to fight in major battles.If they were sent to the the trenches, they were almost guaranteed they wouldn't make it back. They would either get shot or bombed inside the trenches and if that didn't happen they would die of diseases. eg. trench foot.There would always be the sound of explosions and gun fires, yelling and screaming of men fighting. The soldiers would see death everyday, and some would even sleep next to rotting flesh just to keep warm .so overall war at Gallipoli was certainly no holiday for the Australian Soldiers.
Well lets see, when it rained the trenches would become nothing more than ditches filled with mud, when winter came all the ANZACs would become prone to frostbite. At times the biggest killer wasn't the fighting but the disease. So basically the conditions were terrible.
The ANZAC campaign in Gallipoli lasted for eight months.
Australian soldiers first arrived in Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. They remained there for about eight months.
the Gallipoli campaign was possibly the worst that soldiers ever served in.
They were transported there, by Navy vessels.
The People who fought at Gallipoli were the French British and Australian soldiers
what were some of the good experiences of the soldiers at galliploi
The aim of the Gallipoli campaign was to secure a trade route through which the Allies could deliver supplies to Russia. The campaign failed, turning out to be a miserable defeat for the Allies to which they lost 44,000 soldiers.
