Best Answer

The battle of Gallipoli was a front line between the Allied forces and the Ottomans in WW 1 which commenced in April 25, 1915, ended in January 9, 1916 and caused the casualties of more than 300.000 soldiers including the dead of both the Ottoman and Allied forces [British, French, Australian, New Zealand and British colonies].

The reason was that the Allied forces estimated that could invade and conquer the Ottoman Empire capital city of Constantinople [Istanbul currently] and secure a sea route to Russia.
