Why were the Anzac's at the Anzac Cove and who were they fighting with at there?
They were in charged with trying to make a beach head in turkey who were allied with the Germans, Had they been able to establish themselves and move inland it would have proved to be an important strategic development for the British. The problem was however that their officers were incompetents and put them ashore in the wrong place which lead to their ultimate defeat.
Anzac Cove is where the ANZAC forces first fought during the Gallipoli campaign of WW1. The ANZACs were the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and the cove was named after them. The troops landed at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, but its original name was Ari Birun. Four days after the landing, General William Birdwood, commander of ANZAC, recommended that the site of the landing be named Anzac Cove.
Nothing (?) The ANZACs are mainly known for their contribution to WW1 at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey and in France/Belgium. The ANZACS were however a common sight in Scotland during World War 1. It was one of their most favourite destinations while on leave. The reasons for this were because of the large number of Scottish Australians in the ANZAC forces as well as the 9,694 Scottish born ANZACS. (See National Archives of Australia…
The actual time of the very first landing at Anzac Cove is believed to have been at 4:28 am on 25 April 1915. The first groups of men set off from the ships from 3:30am onwards. Each tow, or wave of men, took between 30 and 45 minutes to reach the shore. Troops continued to arrive for many more months, until the ANZACs were withdrawn eight months later.
